College counseling is embedded into our advisory program, where students have regular conversations with advisors about their passions and interests, so as to better understand themselves as learners.

These conversations play directly into the process of choosing the best fit for each student. Through the annual home visit and regular 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.
