College Counseling

Let your interests and sense of purpose drive your college planning.

College Counseling

At San Domenico, our college counseling program focuses on encouraging independence and accountability while connecting each student’s individual interests and sense of purpose with an appropriate post-secondary plan. We believe that the college application process can be a confidence-building experience that promotes self-reflection and individual growth, when approached with the mindset of finding an appropriate academic, social, and emotional fit for each unique student. For this reason, our core values—Study, Reflection, Service, and Community—are mindfully incorporated in our discussions about college and life after San Domenico. 

Our college counselors actively serve as a resource for all San Domenico Upper School students, and empower them to drive their college search and become better communicators and decision-makers in the process. Self-advocacy is highly encouraged as students discern interests and abilities, set goals, and engage in purposeful research. Each step of the way, we encourage students to embrace their curiosity and earnestly seek academic and extracurricular challenges that will highlight their personal interests.
