We believe that the college counseling process is a natural offshoot of the academic and personal journey each boy began at his enrollment at US. Students should arrive at their college decisions as a result of their academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular programs. We structure a comprehensive program that helps students reflect upon their strengths and interests and represent themselves effectively to the colleges of their choice.
Our approach to college counseling is individual. As each boy is his own person, colleges have their own unique "character," and we hope to foster a good student-college match. While we believe that each boy will approach the process in his own way and in his own time, we expect him to take responsibility for it; to not do so would be to short-circuit the developmental growth that is central to the college search.
Throughout their time at US, students are urged to challenge themselves as consistently as possible, and to establish and maintain good relationships with their teachers, coaches and advisors. While many resources are available for students to structure their efforts, these are not intended to replace the personal advising process that is fundamental to the college search. We are here to support and advise the boys in every way we can, and we invite students and parents to contact us with any questions.
