College Counseling

Our students flourish at top liberal arts colleges, research universities, conservatories, and art and design schools. Our graduates become global citizens, engaged in the fields of academia, business, technology, public service, and the arts.

The College Counseling office emphasizes balance through the college admission process. We help students reflect, assess goals, and explore “colleges that fit." We also help families understand the financial aid process and current college admission climate. About 70 college admission representatives visit the school each year to meet with interested juniors and seniors. 

College Reps

We use Scoir for scheduling your visits. CEEB Code: 053-027.
