What personal or academic counseling resources are available at this school? Is there a dedicated college counselor at the school? Is he/she familiar with universities worldwide?

We didn't really use any of the counseling resources in K. I think the counselor taught some lessons in the class and they did a "moving away" meet-up for each grade with the kids moving over the summer. But we never used them otherwise. - Feb 2020

The lower school guidance counselor is great and personable. She has worked well with my children. One of them frequents her office more often than my others. :-) I don't know about a college counselor. I'm guessing yes. - Feb 2017

B. No experience with regards to college applications and career advising, but it is available to Secondary students. - Jan 2011

Counselors are available at all levels. In elementary, the counselors are involved in the classrooms once a month, and also when necessary -- in our KG class' case, the death of a class pet. At the high school level, the college applications process was really good, with the counselor showing our child how to identify the right kind of school, how to narrow things down, and what kinds of questions to ask. They hold parent meetings so that parents know what kinds of deadlines their child should be meeting, and when they should begin the process, including collecting financial information. - Jun 2010
