College Counseling

college counselors speaking with upper school students

Welcome to the college counseling office! Catlin Gabel’s college counseling program, with its emphasis on personalized guidance, helps each student explore the many college opportunities available.

Through schoolwide programming and individual counseling, Catlin Gabel’s two college counselors help students identify those colleges that best suit their interests, abilities, and goals.

Counselors guide students through all aspects of the college admission process, from developing appropriate college lists to completing applications, writing essays, and applying for financial aid. We keep parents informed and involved in the college counseling process through written communication, class meetings, parent information sessions, and individual meetings.

Note: The features as described below detail our college counseling program without adjustments required by health concerns raised by COVID-19. As necessary, we will modify our program in accordance with the best health practices the school determines.
