With three counselors and an office coordinator, college counseling is highly personalized at Moses Brown. Counselors host college representatives–and visit campuses themselves–to gain firsthand knowledge of the schools they recommend for MB students. Counselors encourage young people to reflect deeply about their values, priorities, and talents to identify institutions that best match their interests and goals.
Whether our students choose to enroll in one of the nation’s leading liberal arts colleges, public flagship universities or premier research universities, or leading programs in a specialized discipline, the college options for Moses Brown graduates are as broad and diverse as our students’ talents and interests.
Moses Brown’s college counseling program begins in earnest during junior year. Through one-on-one meetings, counselors get to know a student’s personality, preferences, and goals in order to recommend colleges that might be a good fit. Counselors help students reflect on what they’re looking for and what they like (or don’t like) as they begin to define their priorities, host college representatives from over 100 institutions, and work with students and families to develop a plan for visiting colleges likely to be a great match.
Junior Class College Day, a comprehensive event for juniors and parents, complements a range of other programs and workshops for juniors on topics such as making the most of a college fair, college essay writing, interviewing, and other aspects of the application process.
In junior year, students take the PSAT as well as the practice ACT, and will likely take their first official SAT or ACT as well. Student athletes contact coaches if they are planning to compete at the collegiate level, and visual and performing artists begin curating their portfolios of work. All students begin researching colleges and learning how to articulate their strengths in order to best present themselves.Inquire
