College Counseling

Prepare for College

Finding the right college or university that fits a student's goals and interests is a core element of the Kents Hill School experience. Our college counseling program is highly individualized with counselors who become strong, informed advisors and advocates for our students and their families. 

Students receive help with every step of the process, from deciding where to apply to completing the necessary forms. In preparing students for the next steps after graduation, we focus on their ability to think independently, advocate for themselves, and work in a collaborative spirit with others. Kents Hill graduates enroll in a wide range of outstanding colleges and universities and go on to work in many different fields.

"The college guidance team is invaluable. Not only did they walk our daughter throughout the entire college admissions process step-by-step, they deeply understood her goals to recommend colleges that would be "right."
