College Advising

As a college prep school, we are confident that our students leave Wesleyan prepared for college. In turn, we want to help students find a college where they will leave prepared for the real-world.
The excitement we feel over a child choosing Samford University is no different than the excitement we have over one that chooses University of Georgia, Yale, Davidson College, Georgia College, or University of Virginia.
Our end goal is not a certain number of “highly ranked” schools or a certain number of UGA acceptances, but rather hundreds of unique students continuing on the path God has marked for them.
