Through a highly individualized program that involves both students and their families, great care and attention are given to guiding and supporting students and their families throughout the college selection process. Stanwich School students are guided to find the college or university that best matches his or her academic abilities, goals, desires for the future and personal growth.

The Stanwich School has partnered with Howard Greene & Associates, the nation’s leading independent educational consulting company, to provide the very best college counseling services possible. 

Our college counselors have developed a structured advising program designed to provide students with personalized information, support and resources to find a college that will be a good match. The process begins in the tenth grade when we help students identify their strengths and interests so they can build on them as they progress through their Upper School development. As students continue through their junior year, we provide developmentally appropriate support as they build on their unique set of talents. Beginning in the second semester of their junior year, students meet individually with the Greene’s to begin the college search process in earnest. Students continue to meet regularly with the Greene’s through every aspect of the college application, admission and selection process.

The college selection process is about fit, so we encourage students to take ownership of their college search and explore many college options to discover what characteristics are important to fostering their growth and development.
