College Counseling

Department of College Counseling

The purpose of college counseling is to provide guidance during the college search and application process. Beginning in Upper School, students and parents gain access to Scoir, a commonly used data-collection system necessary for college application preparation and completion. Curriculum delivery occurs during the advisory period at different points of the year for each grade level, with increasingly comprehensive instruction each subsequent year. In addition, the department sends routine newsletters and announcements to juniors and seniors.

Grading, Ranking, & Weighting

Grades are reported on a 100 point (percentile) scale, with 60 as the minimum passing grade and minimum mark for college recommendation. It is the policy of TMI not to rank its students.

Semester grades appearing on the transcript are unweighted. Honors & Advanced Placement courses are weighted when calculating the cumulative GPA only. Additional points awarded:
  • Honors: +3 points
  • AP Courses: +5 points
