The College Advising Office at La Lumiere works with each student to help find colleges and universities where they will be challenged, happy, and successful. We want our students to find the best matches for them individually, and our goal is to do this with as little stress and pressure on them as possible. The formal advising process begins in a student’s junior year, but students of all ages are welcome to visit the College Advising Office for guidance or to have their questions answered.
100% of La Lumiere students receive acceptance to college or university each year.

For college and university representatives
We welcome representatives from college and university campuses throughout the country during both fall and spring semesters. In addition, our college advisor serves as an ambassador to college admission offices nationwide through visits and phone calls, thereby promoting an understanding of the value and unique nature of a La Lumiere education.
for La Lumiere students and Parents
The College Advising Office uses a service called Naviance to help students manage and track their college application progress and view college admissions events. Parents also have access to Naviance and should use it to supervise their students’ progress and stay updated on what’s happening in College Advising at La Lu.
We are pleased to offer the FREE Smart Track™ College Funding Program to help 9th-12th grade families plan, estimate and reduce college costs.
