The mission of George School’s College Counseling Office is to help you find a college that is right for you. It is a custom-tailored approach. And it all begins in the fall of your freshman year, as our team of counselors meet with you to learn about your interests and help plan your course selections and continues in your sophomore year with seminars on the college selection process.
The process moves into high gear during the second term of your junior year when you are matched with an individual college counselor who will work closely with you through the entire college application process.
Along the way you have plenty of other resources. You can meet college admission officers when they come to visit George School. (During the fall of 2018, representatives from more than 200 colleges visited campus.) You can attend college fairs (two are held at George School with more than 85 colleges attending each), browse guidebooks and online resources in the College Counseling Research Center, and attend the variety of annual programs about the college search process offered by the College Counseling Office.
But the superstars of the process are our counselors, who have years of experience in the college admission process and attend conferences, visit college campuses, and network with college admission officers. Well versed the the entire process, they will guide you through the search, review your application materials, advocate for you, and ultimately help you make the big step to college.
