4-Year Program

The College Counseling Program by Year

Suffield’s four-year College Counseling Program is afforded generous staffing, modern space, significant financial resources, and dedicated time in the school day. This unique program includes material designed to appropriately challenge students of each grade.

Role & Responsibilities

It is important to understand who takes responsibility for which aspects of the college search. Our operating philosophy is that the most successful college match derives from a student-driven process. We will work with students to ensure they have every tool they need to be successful in their college search. Below outlines best practices for students, college counselors, and parents as they navigate the college search together.

Parent Program

Our college counseling office offers several programs for parents to learn more about the college admission landscape and process. Programs are scheduled for Parents’ Weekend in the fall and as part of the Parents’ Discussion Series. Additionally, a Junior Parents’ College Program is held every December and focuses on more specifics about the college application process, information on financing college, and how to best support their child throughout this exciting and important time in their life.
