College Office

It is the mission of the CSS college office to educate, inform and support students and their families about all aspects of the college process. Our goal is to help students have the most successful and least stressful application and selection process possible. The work we do together is both practical and profound. We guide students on an exploration of what is important to them in their academics, lives and identities, and the kinds of experiences they hope to have at college and beyond. We work with students in small-group “College Clubs,”  beginning in the spring of their junior year and continuing through graduation. College Clubs meet during the regular school day, on Wednesdays. We also offer all students 1:1 essay consultation and support, in-person and through Zoom, beginning the summer after their junior year.

Our goal is to help students find schools that are good fits academically, financially and socially.
