College Guidance

Prep for Prep’s College Guidance team helps our families navigate every step of the college application process. We build strong relationships with undergraduate admissions offices, as well as with the college counselors at our partner independent schools, to work most effectively on behalf of our students. We arrange spring break college trips and assist students in developing a balanced college list, encouraging them to explore schools where they have the greatest chance of having their full demonstrated financial need met.
