College Counseling

The mission of George School’s College Counseling Office is to help you find a college that is right for you. It is an individualized process, grounded in self-reflection. Over your four years here, our college counselors help you engage authentically with your George School experience on the pathway to an exciting and rewarding college process.

Our curriculum begins your sophomore year when you start to build a relationship with the College Counseling Office. During junior year, you and your college counselor develop an individualized plan focused on fit. Our college counseling seminar series serves as a framework for these conversations throughout your junior year. As you move into your senior year, you will work with your college counselor to craft an intentional college list, organize your applications, and identify where your future aspirations will be fulfilled.

Our experienced and knowledgeable college counselors have all worked in selective college admission and will help you and your family navigate the ever-changing world of higher education. Alongside your one-on-one meetings with your counselor, you will attend our annual college fair, meet with college representatives in your senior year, and engage in workshops on components of the application process. Our goal is for you and your family to feel informed and confident so that you will let your life speak through your college process.
