The Pennington School believes that each graduate should attend the college or university that best matches his or her own interests and strengths. In identifying the best place in which to continue education and work towards future professions, each student's personality, achievements, and goals are taken into consideration.
The process of finding and selecting the appropriate match is a thoughtful process that begins during the freshman and sophomore years. At this time, the college advisors provide an overview of the college selection process for students and their parents. The process becomes more focused during the junior year when students attend college fairs, take the SATs, and start narrowing down their lists of colleges. During the senior year, students are supported as they complete and submit applications to the schools of their choice. Because of the relationships developed between teachers and students at The Pennington School, students benefit from the quality of recommendations that their teachers are able to submit on their behalf.
