College Counseling

Finding the Right Fit

Students in College T-Shirts - College Counseling at Saint Mary's HallFinding and getting accepted into the right college can be daunting. That’s why Saint Mary’s Hall begins familiarizing students with the college admission process as early as Form 9 — guiding students through everything from selecting courses and establishing goals to writing admissions essays, requesting recommendation letters, and practicing interviews.

In addition to attending group college-counseling sessions, all Upper School students meet with counselors for individual and family conferences. Using a broad array of resources, our dedicated, full-time college counselors help students assess their academic and personal strengths to identify colleges that match their needs.

We offer a variety of tools that will aid students as they transition from Saint Mary’s Hall to college:

"My experience this year has been that our College Counseling team clearly strives, at every turn, to make the college application process as seamless and stress-free as possible for the students AND the parents."

"The College Counseling team does an amazing job for all our students (and I'm not saying that because my kid got her first choice!). They work very hard to position each student where they will succeed, and they encourage students to explore who they are becoming."
