College Counseling

What happens after Dana Hall is a big part of what happens at Dana Hall.

The quest to help ensure you end up at the right college is a major part of the Dana Hall journey. Our college counseling program is carefully structured to give students plenty of opportunities to dream, brainstorm, and discuss their options before they begin visiting and applying.
Big school or small? City or town? Close to home or a different corner of the world? A college that feels like Dana Hall, or one that’s vastly different? Through a combination of regular group meetings and one-on-one sessions, we’ll help focus your search until you arrive at a list that resonates with your interests and feels both ambitious and within reach. Along the way, you’ll study college in context—for example, how notions of equity and privilege impact the college admissions process.

Like so much at Dana Hall, college counseling is a team effort.

We factor input from students’ families into our process. We connect students with Dana Hall alums at schools that interest them. Most importantly, we give students the freedom to explore what college means to them academically, socially, and emotionally—and a process that leads them toward a school that welcomes, inspires, and challenges them.
