9th Grade

College Counseling

With three counselors and an office coordinator, college counseling is highly personalized at Moses Brown. Counselors host collegerepresentatives–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, flagship public universities, 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.

As ninth graders focus on establishing a strong academic foundation and healthy social identity, college counselors visit Freshman Studies classes to provide an overview of the college application process. Embracing academic opportunities, taking appropriately challenging courses, and enjoying activities they genuinely find interesting and fulfilling will result in a profile that supports their college applications. Presentations and workshops starting in ninth grade are designed to help students and parents understand what to expect for the years ahead.

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.
