College Counseling

college counseling

In keeping with the mission of St. Paul’s School for Girls, the Office of College Counseling believes that the minds and hearts of our girls should be fully engaged in the college process. We empower our students to choose colleges and universities that fit their unique abilities, aspirations, interests, and character. We counsel our students toward schools that will build on the foundation of learning, leadership, and self-exploration the student has developed in high school.

We believe that the college application process can be a gratifying and rewarding time, so our goal is always to provide each student with the support that she needs, while encouraging and challenging her to explore and embrace her own strengths, thoughts, and dreams for her future.
