Finding a college that fits a student’s goals, aspirations, and interests is an integral part of the Kents Hill School experience. A parent of a recent graduate noted, "The college guidance team at Kents Hill is invaluable. They deeply understood our daughter's motivations and goals to recommend colleges that would be "right." 

Students work closely with an experienced college counselor during every step of the process, including identifying personal and professional goals, developing an individualized testing strategy, deciding where to apply, and completing application materials. At the same time, we stress the importance of students taking responsibility and further developing self-advocacy and self-determination skills.
