College Counseling

The role of college counseling is to help students translate their unique abilities and interests into post-secondary education goals, and ultimately, satisfying careers.  It is our intent to provide students with the tools, resources, and individual support necessary to discover the colleges that best fit their skills and aspirations.  To that end, we help students understand the admission process, consider upper school curriculum options, research colleges, narrow their choices, and apply to a variety of suitable schools, all the while keeping in mind that the Lord has a plan for each of them.  We strive to make the process manageable, personal, and enjoyable for each family. 

Boasting an annual college acceptance rate of 100%, our students are offered admission to selective colleges and universities including Brown, Harvard, Princeton, NYU, UCLA, Dartmouth, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Chicago, Wheaton, Davidson, Duke, UNC-CH, NC State, Wake Forest, U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, Boston College and Villanova University.

St. David’s School is an institutional member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and supports the membership policies and ethical principles included in their Statement of Principles of Good Practice.  Our students are encouraged to read and abide by the NACAC Student Rights and Responsibilities.
