Park Tudor's College Counseling Department helps students and parents understand the complexities of the college admissions process. Our counselors work one-on-one with each student to assess their academic and personal needs, leading to an appropriate selection of institutions to which to apply.
The comprehensive 4-year college advisory program starts in 9th grade by advising students' academic progression and extracurricular participation. All Upper School students participate in group college-planning sessions, and juniors and seniors have individual conferences with one of our college counselors to guide them through the application and admissions process.
