College Counseling

Sayre School’s college counseling process utilizes the knowledge that colleges and universities have individual personalities just as each of our Sayre School students has an individual and distinctive personality.  The college counseling process aims to identify for each student the right “type” of school, in regard to size, cost, distance from home, region of the country, quality of specific academic programs, social climate, community settings, and so forth, and to help students gain admittance to colleges where they will grow and thrive.

Mrs. Bilberry and I are fortunate to serve as college counselors in an environment such as Sayre, where college counseling is a mindset. The meaningful relationships we develop with each student is integral to the personalized guidance and support we provide. We partner with families, listen to their ideas and goals, and help them sort out the myths versus the realities of what makes a college a good fit.  Our ultimate privilege and challenge is to lead each student to an array of schools that best serves their personal interests and passions.
