The Right Fit College - Preparing Students for College and Beyond
The college counseling process at Seacrest is a customized, student-centered journey that begins freshman year and continues on, sometimes, well past graduation. From assistance with course and activity planning to the completion of the application itself, every step of the process provides the student with an opportunity for self-reflection, motivation and growth.
The college counseling staff is able to support students with personalized attention at all stages of the college search and application process, including specialized assistance for student-athletes and artists.
College Counseling sets us apart and puts our student’s goals and futures first. The college process begins in ninth grade and is individualized to each student with the goal of finding the right fit for every senior, based on academic performance, future goals, school culture, student personality, financial needs, and extracurriculars. Students and parents become sophisticated college consumers who make educated decisions when choosing the perfect fit.

BEGINS IN NINTH GRADE
Our comprehensive college counseling program sets Seacrest apart. Beginning freshman year, we draw every student into the process. Each fall, college admissions representatives from some of the nation’s best colleges and universities visit our Upper School campus. Annual college tours are scheduled for each class and offer students a glimpse of colleges and universities each having distinctive programming and personality.

Seacrest also offers unique opportunities for career exploration to its Upper School students through our Seacrest Experience and CareerQuest programs. During the Seacrest Experience, juniors and seniors are able to design an internship or job shadowing experience that will help them learn more about an intended major or career. CareerQuest is an annual event that brings professionals from across the region and the country onto our campus for a day of programming and interaction with our students.

Whenever I travel I always try to incorporate a college visit into my trip. I don’t always sign up for an official tour and/or information session, but I take advantage of the opportunity to experience the campus in real time.
Seacrest Country Day School has 100% college acceptance rate for the class of 2021 and the class of 2022 is on course to hit that same goal.
