While the goal of college counseling is to help our girls gain admission to an institution of higher education that reflects the best fit for their individual interests and aspirations, our counselors also focus on self-awareness, self-advocacy, confidence and achieving a healthy balance in life.
Students learn to take responsibility for researching colleges, completing applications, meeting deadlines and registering for tests. With guidance and support, college counselors actively engage with students and families as they learn about and navigate their college options. It is important for all - students, parents, guardians, faculty and counselors - to collaborate with honest communication, an open mind, and a positive outlook.
Every Baldwin girl has her own unique experiences to reflect upon and an exciting journey ahead. College counseling supports students throughout the Upper School years to help girls realize their full potential and take hold of the range of opportunities available to them.
