Welcome to the Culver Academy College Advising Office! The purpose of the College Advising Office is to teach Culver students about the college application process, and to advise and create opportunities for students to discover the best "fit" academically, socially, athletically and personally. In educating students at Culver in the "whole person" philosophy, we are seeking educational opportunities and enrichment, which will allow this educational philosophy to continue long after their Culver education. We recognize that not all students are identical and that "one size" does not fit all. We know the college application process will be an important part of each student's Culver experience. Below you will information for each grade level. Please feel free to contact the college advising staff at anytime.
