The Post-Placement Counseling department supports the academic and personal progress of Prep students transitioning to independent school through high school graduation. Prep counselors visit monthly with students at day and boarding schools, and meet school administrators to advocate for students and ensure their well-being. They also help identify extra resources when necessary, such as academic tutoring or mental health counseling.
Counselors also plan activities open to all Prep students to reconnect outside of school, including cultural and sporting events. These activities foster strong relationships among Prep students while encouraging personal growth. We also offer a student emergency fund, family financial aid counseling, chaperoned college trips, and summer boarding school retreats.

The Student Support Journey
Supporting your child's academic and personal well-being
Each Prep student has a Post-Placement Counselor who will help ease the transition to his or her new new middle or high school. Our staff also plan recreational activities for students to reconnect outside of school.
Middle School and Upper School Counselors host monthly meetings with students across the five boroughs to check on their academic and personal well-being. They also communicate with school staff to ensure students have the resources they need.
Boarding School Counselors travel across the Northeast to meet regularly with students on their campuses. They help students identify any academic or personal resources they need at the school and keep them informed of opportunities at Prep.
We host several family financial aid workshops throughout the year as well as individual meetings by appointment. Senior Counselors also assist with outplacement for students transitioning from a K-8 to 9-12 school.
