Bennett Day School College Counseling
College counseling is embedded into our advisory program, where students have regular conversations with advisors about their interests and goals, so as to better understand themselves as learners.
These conversations play directly into the process of choosing the best fit for each student. Through regular check-ins and conferences, Bennett Day advisors and families are having regular conversations around a student’s growth as a learner and what may make the most sense for them when they graduate. Our learning software tracks each student’s interests and provides options for that student as to what careers and next steps most match their interests.
College acceptances continue to pour in for our first small-but-mighty class of graduates, and we couldn’t be more proud!
Our Upper School (9th-12th Grade) opened in 2019, and the last four years have shown us that students thrive in an environment with project-based learning + competency based assessment, and that this unique type of program leads to a fun, challenging, and collaborative experience for students.
