College Counseling:

Photo of Co-Ed Boarding School in Philadelphia PA areaPerkiomen offers its student the support of an outstanding college counseling program. The defining strength of this program is the truly exceptional degree of personal attention the school’s counselors are able to provide to each student. As one of our counselors says, “Our graduating classes total just 70 or 80 students, and we know and work closely with every single one of them.” The college counseling process begins early—as students start their upper school careers. Later, as they prepare for the SAT or ACT, students can take advantage of excellent on-site test preparation services.

They also benefit from Naviance®, a state-of-the-art software system that helps organize the college application process. In addition, they can meet with representatives of 100 selective colleges and universities that visit campus each year, thanks to the careful relationship-building work of the Perkiomen college counseling staff. The result of this process is an impressive list of college destinations—a list that reflects a determined effort to help each graduate find a school that represents a true fit for his or her unique strengths and aspirations.
