The AIS Process


Freshman students and their parents attend our Path to College Night to learn about building a course of study and co-curricular plan at Agnes Irwin with a focus toward college. For athletes, sport-specific recruiting guidance begins and continues through senior year.

Sophomores are matched with a college counselor to review AIS course projections and discuss how to best develop their interests and talents. Parents attend our Sophomore Parent Night to demystify the application and admission process as standardized testing begins.

Junior Parent Night in the fall reviews the search and application process in detail. Starting in the winter, juniors participate in weekly seminars to focus on researching potential college destinations; rehearse mock interviews; and join their family in the spring for an in-depth meeting with a college counselor to strategize the path for the college admission process.

Each senior has a dedicated college counselor who works side-by-side with her through all phases of the application process and actively champions her in the journey. Students participate in weekly seminars focused on college applications, meet with admission representatives, and participate in college readiness and transition courses.
