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.

Where to Find Us

If you'll be joining us in person, Dana Hall's street address is 21 Dana Road, Wellesley, MA 02482. Once you arrive on campus, please drive up Dana Road and park in any available space. We do have one parking spot saved for visitors to College Counseling. To find it, please go to the top of the hill, turn right at the stop sign and look for a blue sign marking the space (on your left). If that spot is taken, please park in any of the spots along the back of campus. We are in the Upper School Classroom Building that you passed on your right as you entered campus and drove up Dana Road - 21 Dana Road. Ring the buzzer to be let into the building at either entrance. The College Counseling office is on the first floor, about halfway down the hallway. 

If you have any difficulty finding us, please call (781) 489-1355 and we will be happy to help.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
