Over 98% of our graduates are accepted into 4-year colleges and universities all over the country.

Our goal is to help your student find the right college fit for them.
Personalized college counseling is built into the school curriculum and covered by tuition fees. In 9th and 10th grade, academic performance and planning are emphasized, with students filling out inventories to help them plan for their futures. The college counselor meets periodically with 9th and 10th graders to check on their progress and hold college planning meetings. Starting in 11th grade, all students go on two college visits a year to identify features and characteristics that fit with their individual preference. In their second semester, 11th graders take the Junior Seminar, a weekly class that introduces all of the important concepts necessary for a successful college application.
