College Counseling

From the moment you set foot in the Upper School, you will take part in exceptional college preparation. At Chase, you and your parents will work closely with a seasoned college counselor to design a plan that is tailor-made to your unique strengths, goals and dreams. Together, you will create a successful strategy for standardized testing and develop a list of colleges that are the most suitable. You will also assemble a highly competitive application that includes compelling essays and an effective resume. Our Chase seniors accumulate impressive numbers of college acceptances, and our goal is for you to choose the institution that is the most ideal fit, so that you can continue your journey filled with a positive disposition for learning, and a lifelong love of creativity, curiosity and wonder.
