The Providence Day 大学指导 Office assists students and families through all phases of the college search and application process. While a student’s time here at Providence Day is far more than just a resume-builder, we encourage our students to remain aware of their eventual collegiate goals and to consider that they are constantly “writing the story” that they will eventually tell on their college applications. Our primary goal is to help students find the college that is the best academic, extracurricular, social, and financial fit; we therefore encourage our students to explore the many college options—in and out of state, private and public.

Staffed by three experienced college counselors, the 大学指导 Office understands that the admissions world is complex and ever-changing. Along with personal visits to over 50 college campuses per year, we also attend and present annually at professional conferences and often serve on regional and national college admissions boards and organizations.

Each college counselor works with one third of each Upper School class, allowing us to place individual attention at the core of our program. Students are assigned to a college counselor early in their Upper School career for assistance with course selection and early college planning. These individual meetings become more frequent and focused mid-junior year when the college search and application process begins in earnest. For the final year and a half of the students’ 上学校 careers, they stay in close touch with their college counselors regarding every aspect of the process, including applications, essays, standardized testing, teacher recommendations, financial aid, and scholarship searches.

In addition to the individual attention briefly described above, the 大学指导 Office provides a variety of college-related programs available to our students and parents, including:

  • 大一焦点
  • Sophomore College Field Trip
  • Sophomore Case Studies
  • Understanding the PSAT and Standardized Testing
