12th Grade

College Counseling

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.

Twelfth graders work one-on-one with counselors to identify, research, and apply to the institutions that are likely to be the best fit for that student’s abilities and interests. Counselors assist students in developing a college list and application timeline, and provide support on all elements of the application process. Students form close relationships with their counselor as they reach this milestone. Having engaged in a multi-year process of self-discovery results in confidence as students make decisions about which great school they ultimately want to attend.

Visiting the College Counseling Office 

If using GPS, use the address 294 Lloyd Avenue. Enter through the Lower Gate on Lloyd Avenue. You will pass the Moran Softball field on your right as you drive up a hill onto campus. As you near the top of the hill, you will see a small parking lot on your right with spots labeled for visitor parking. There should be a parking attendant on duty if you need assistance.

The college counseling office is located in Friends Hall, the building closest to the visitor lot. Follow the sidewalk along the road up the hill, and take a right into the quad area. Then head up the steps onto the deck, and enter the right-hand set of double doors. Once inside, take a right. Our office will be on your left.
