College Counseling

Department of College Counseling

The purpose of college counseling is to provide guidance during the college search and application process. A new curriculum is in development with the hope of arming students with pertinent information appropriate to each grade level, including the Middle School years. Beginning in Upper School, students and parents will have access to Naviance, a commonly used data-collection system necessary for college application preparation and completion. Grade-specific information in the Upper School may be accessed by parents and students by going directly to Naviance. In addition, the department sends out a semi-monthly newsletter and routine announcements to juniors and seniors via Naviance. Curriculum delivery occurs during the advisory period at different points of the year for each grade level, with increasingly comprehensive instruction each subsequent year.

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
