"When I read applications from Pingree students, I feel like I am meeting mature, interested, and interesting young adults who have much to contribute to my institution." ~ A Visiting College Representative
The college process at Pingree is student-centered and dedicated to the philosophy that “College is a match to be made, not a prize to be won.” Each student possesses a unique set of talents, skills, and distinctive strengths. Our goal is to help students target a selection of undergraduate programs that will both challenge and affirm their intellectual and extracurricular aspirations. We encourage our students to view their college search as a year of self-discovery and exploration that will further their awareness of who they are and where they are headed in life.
The process begins in earnest in the winter of the junior year with a series of meetings between students and their counselors. Subsequent meetings include parents, academic advisors, teachers, and adults involved in the extracurricular life of the student. Parents and students also will attend two major meetings where every aspect of the application process is discussed in detail.
Our counselors have extensive experience with the admissions process. Throughout the year, they update their information and add new resources by visiting colleges, attending professional workshops, and hosting admissions representatives from across the nation. Drawing on our in-depth knowledge of college admissions, as well as our understanding and appreciation of each student as an individual, we offer guidance and support as Pingree students prepare to embark on successful college careers.
