The process of preparing for college begins the moment students set foot in the Upper School. Our approach to college counseling is in keeping with our school mission to foster a passion for lifelong learning and pursuit of knowledge. At Chase, college counseling is a highly personalized process focused on assessing the strengths, talents and dreams of each individual and finding the colleges or universities that best fit his or her needs.
Beginning in ninth grade and continuing through college placement in senior year, college counseling is comprehensive and individualized. College Counselors work with students and parents to share successful strategies for standardized testing, assemble a thorough list of possible colleges, and offer advice on honing college essays, resumes, and applications. Chase seniors accumulate impressive numbers of college acceptances, and the college counseling office also assists them in selecting the best school for their interests and goals.

Each year, the College Counseling Office hosts a College Fair and the date for the 2014 fair is Thursday, April 17, from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm. Nearly one hundred colleges and universities are in attendance. Students and their parents from all area schools are welcome to attend this informal opportunity to speak with college admission representatives from across the country.
