College Counseling

In many ways, preparation for "the college process" begins as soon as a student enters Rye Country Day School.

They take challenging courses in the full range of academic subjects (including a lot of writing along the way); try their hand at a variety of extracurricular activities; and form close relationships with faculty. All of these will bear fruit in the form of academic preparation and personal growth and maturity. Each year contributes to the students' eventual goal to enroll in a college that is well suited to their interests, their learning styles, and their plans for the future.

College Process Road Map

The college application process offers students a chance to make choices about the types of learning and living environments that will both nurture and challenge them when they go on to further study. While recognizing that each student follows an individual path, we hope this overview will give you a preview of the important milestones on the road toward college admissions.
