College and Academic Advising

Students receive support from the College and Academic Advising team throughout their Upper School academic career. The Deans meet individually with students throughout the year and advise them on a range of academic matters, extracurricular involvement, and coordinate a series of grade-level educational programs for families and students to help them understand and prepare for the college admission process.
