College Counseling

Our Approach

The Tower Hill College Counseling team is firmly grounded in the belief that discovering “good matches” between students and post-secondary institutions is what the college admission process is all about. We care what students think, and we care about where they will feel comfortable and at home. Our team leads programming, hosts college representatives, and holds one-on-one meetings to educate students and families about the many different pieces of the college admission puzzle. By senior year, Tower Hill students are well-positioned to compete for entrance into first-year classes at colleges and universities that fit students' aspirations and help them to realize their academic potential.
