For High School Counselors

You’re Committed to Your Students’ Success. So Are We.

Thank you for your interest in Wentworth. Our emphasis on cooperative education gives students the opportunity to gain hands-on skills as they put classroom theory into practice. At Wentworth, a minimum of two co-ops are required for graduation. During their co-ops, students earn an income and do not pay tuition. 

Though our Admission team is currently working remotely, we're still here to help your students—both those deciding on where to go to school and those just beginning their college search.


For Accepted Students

More information on how we hope to handle these challenges are addressed on our Admission website’s Coronavirus page.
  • Your students can check our Accepted Students page or their email for virtual experiences to learn more about Wentworth, including meeting students, faculty or staff.
