College Counseling

Maximizing Success

A mindset and a toolset.

From our Upper School, students consistently enroll in top colleges and universities, including Harvard, Columbia, Brown, NYU, Duke, Stanford, USC, and UC Berkeley.

How do we make that happen?
Immersed in our intensive, hands-on curriculum, guided by multi-talented teachers, our students build mastery and curiosity in equal measurealong with an acute awareness of who they are and what they care most about.

That awareness serves them particularly well throughout the college application process. Starting in tenth grade, your child meets regularly with one of our expert college counselors to help make the most beneficial and thoughtful choices for the future.

Accompanying your family through the entire application process, leading campus tours across the nation, and attending carefully to your child's dreams and capabilities, our counselors ensure that all applications are both impressive and authenticso our students next learning home is the best school.
