Academy graduates continue their education in many top-tier universities and other institutions around the country. In the recent past, approximately 150 graduates each year have enrolled in more than 70 different institutions in the US and Canada. Typically, the amount of non-need-based scholarship funding that these institutions offer a graduating class averages $8 million.
Full-time college advisers supervise a thorough plan of guidance, including:
- Identifying suitable colleges
- Managing the application process (including taking appropriate standardized tests)
- Applying for need-based financial aid and/or merit scholarships
Students undertake the main work of researching, choosing, and applying to their top-choice colleges. Parents also stay involved in the process during their students’ years at the Academy through an ongoing program of annual College Guidance presentations on admission, financial aid, financial planning, and course selection, as well as family sessions with the college advisers.
