A College-Prep, Independent Day
School for Grades 8-12



Dear Parents,
York's College Counseling Program provides you and your student guidance throughout the college search and application process. Our goal is to help students find colleges where they will be challenged, where they will be happy, and where they will be successful. We do this by guiding, counseling, questioning, recommending, referring, suggesting, and informing. In return, we expect each student to take control of the process. Students who are happiest about the college process are those who ask themselves the hard questions, understand their abilities and needs best, and who are, therefore, willing to work to find good fit colleges during the college search.

To accomplish this, there are many tools we will utilize, for example:

  • Pathways—a required course for all juniors and seniors, designed to guide students through the search and application process and help them stay on track,including work on their personal statements
  • College Matters e-Newsletter—a great resource for junior and senior parents to stay up-to-date on the month's tasks (archived links below)
  • Exam Preparation—we have many online and physical resources for students to 
    use when preparing for standardized exams
  • On-campus College Visits—to help learn about the many colleges and universities out there, we bring as many representatives to campus 

This is just an overview. When you're ready, enter the official College Counseling website for current families here. And remember, I'm here to help.
