Let's talk about college!

Finding the Right Fit

This program is designed to empower students and educate parents on the college search and application process. We provide family and one-on-one counseling as well as curriculum-based seminar courses for juniors in their spring semester. We guide families in creating a list of schools that would be great fits for each individual student. We advise students and parents on standardized testing, the essay, the application process, interviews, college visits and financial aid. In the fall, we work closely with and assist seniors as they complete their essays and applications, ensuring they meet all deadlines. The College Office also hosts over 120 college and university representatives on campus in the fall to meet with students and to learn about Field's unique and engaging community.

Our goal is to help each student on their individual journey through this process, but to also have the students support each other on this path. The gift of lifelong learning is one that will benefit students forever, no matter what kind of formal education they undertake after high school. Every aspect of the educational program at The Field School is geared towards this basic premise.
