"It's not simply whether a student is a good fit for a certain college. It's also about whether that college is a good fit for the student."
radha mishra, Director of college counseling
In partnership with students and parents, knowledgeable college counselors work hard to discover an appropriate future course of action for each student. Beyond our rigorous academics which prepare students for college, informational college counseling programs begin in the student's high school years. As early as sophomore year, students are encouraged to attend these programs and counselors are assigned in the fall of the students' eleventh grade year.
Hun School counselors work very hard to maintain and communicate knowledge of best practices, trends, and emerging opportunities in the world of college admission. They work continuously with college admissions representatives, The Hun School Curriculum Committee, students, and parents. In addition, The Hun School is fortunate to have more than 100 college and university representatives visit each year. Students are invited to meet with representatives, introduce themselves, and ask questions.
Colleges and universities offer acceptances to our students each year.
