Housed in the 3,000 square foot Hoffman College Counseling Center, Suffield’s innovative college counseling program is a model for independent schools across the United States. The latest distinctive forward-looking initiative by Suffield, the four-year college counseling program is afforded generous staffing, modern space, significant financial resources, and dedicated time in the school day. The school provides comprehensive and effective college counseling marked by individual attention and extensive services.
The goals of the college counseling office are threefold:
-To provide highly professional, proactive, hands-on counseling and guidance throughout the college search;
-To represent each student fairly and responsibly, identifying with his or her uniqueness and potential;
-To enable each student to find a match—fitting his or her ambitions and talents with a college’s programs, resources, and style.
Suffield Academy’s mission includes readying students for success at the next level and beyond. As part of this effort, the school’s unique college counseling program includes material designed to appropriately challenge students of each grade.
