Lancaster Country Day School's college advisors work to help students identify colleges and universities that are best suited for their talents, interests, aspirations, and needs. The advisors are actively involved in many facets of the application process and provide support for both students and parents.
The college advising process begins in the junior year when each student is assigned a college advisor. Student surveys and family conferences identify goals, interests, and strengths. Students are encouraged to visit colleges during the spring and summer months. Most students register to take SAT and ACT tests in the junior year as well. During the summer students complete a Common Application as practice for filling out actual applications in the fall of the senior year.
In the senior year the process continues with frequent meetings between students and college advisors. Advisors and Upper School teachers write letters of recommendation and offer suggestions for application essays. Guidance is extensive and thorough. With such concerted efforts, it is no wonder that one hundred percent of Lancaster Country Day School graduates go on to four-year colleges and universities--including some of the most selective ones in the country.
