College Counseling

Suzi Nam with students

Germantown Friends School has provided you with a wonderful start to what we hope will be a lifetime of learning. The next phase of your educational life is equally important. Use this website guide to assist you as you explore your options.

The college admissions process can be time-consuming, frustrating, and sobering. It has several components: searching, visiting, narrowing down your choices, and finally, applying. Ultimately, it is a decision-making process.

All of our counselors, working with you and your parents, are ready to help guide you through this process.

We are happy to offer the college online advisory service Naviance which provides students and families access to Family Connection, a useful tool to help students explore and organize their college admission process.

Do your best as you adjust to the routine and demands of Upper School life. Don't hesitate to ask your teachers and advisors for help or advice. That is why they are there. They want to help you succeed.

As you adjust to the Upper School, think about what courses and activities that you enjoy most.

Consider a summer internship, job or project in an area that you might be interested in pursuing or learning more about.
