At Wilberforce, the goal of education is to cultivate adults who are equipped to care for, govern, and build God’s kingdom. For the majority of our students, education at the college level will be an important part of achieving this goal.
Finding a good fit for college, applying, and learning how to fund college is a process. Our school’s role is to provide guidance in this process, and to help inform and prepare students and families in each milestone.
We work closely with students and families to help identify colleges where our students will continue to develop as whole persons – intellectually, socially, and spiritually. Initial counseling meetings serve to help students identify colleges of interest and become familiarized with the application process, while later assisting students to complete the application process.
We provide detailed timelines for applying with key dates and deadlines. We also offer up-to-date materials and resources. Wilberforce also hosts college application and Financial Aid workshops. Students may also attend sessions hosted by college representatives that visit the school.
The first and most important step in the process is to fully engage in the Wilberforce community of learners.

It's easy to ask for teacher recommendations at Wilberforce. We are truly known by our teachers; we all receive individual attention and care inside and outside of the classroom.
