Finding a place to grow and thrive
At St. Andrew's-Sewanee School, college counseling is all about guiding our students to places where they will grow and thrive. We offer the personalized attention needed to find the college that will help students reach their full potential as scholars and as people. We won't let students talk themselves out of trying for a university that might be a bit of a stretch. And, we won't push a student into the wrong school just to make our matriculation list look good.
Counseling for parents, too
Each year SAS hosts a college counseling workshop for junior students and their parents. The workshop includes sessions with the Director of College Counseling and with college counselors and financial aid officers from the University of the South who help to explain the process and give families a preview of what to expect. Throughout the junior year our Director of College Counseling meets with juniors in groups and individually. During the senior year, parents are invited to a college counseling program during Opening Weekend and a second session on Upper School Family Weekend.
A favorite stop for college counselors
In a typical year, more than 50 colleges and universities send admission representatives to SAS. Given our remote location and small size, this is a clear testament to the reputation our graduates have in the college world.
