College Counseling

At Besant Hill School, the College Counseling Office works closely with all students and their families from the moment they arrive on campus.

Students are encouraged to develop and explore their passions and interests while keeping in mind their responsibility toward their overall health, success, and personal fulfillment. As a college preparatory school, BHS provides students with guidance about the journey toward higher education including aspects such as course selection and strength, extracurricular activities, test preparation, the college search, and application process.

BHS does not view college admission as "a prize to be won." It is the result of thoughtful research, preparation, and planning. Hence, the college counseling process is an individualized one, the goal of which is the best possible match between each of our unique students and the college or university that best meets that student's needs.

Our students matriculate to a wide range of institutions, from public universities to small art colleges. Approximately 90% of seniors choose to enroll at four-year institutions, while the remaining 10% may opt to defer admission while taking a gap year, or to enroll in a two-year school with the plan to transfer to a four-year institution.
