Oh, The Places You Will Go

There are 4,000 colleges in the US. Our job is to find the right one for you.

Personalized attention and strong advocacy are the hallmarks of the college search process at Pomfret. Three experienced college counselors and a full-time Associate Director of College Resources work closely with students, families, and colleges to produce the best possible match between each uniquely talented Pomfret student and the college he or she attends. The college counseling team partners closely with our registrar and our testing coordinator.


In recent years, our graduates have gone on to attend some of the finest colleges and universities in the country.

Carey Lectures

The W.P. Carey Lecture Series brings a representative from a prestigious college or university to speak with students, parents, and faculty about the admissions process.

College Network

College Networking volunteers share their experiences at the universities/colleges and undergraduate and graduate programs they attended.

We will advocate for you by cultivating relationships with a wide variety of colleges, hosting college representative visits, initiating open communication with admissions officers throughout the process, and providing carefully researched counselor evaluations and teacher recommendations. When applicable, we will happily collaborate with independent consultants. In addition, we make test preparation courses available throughout the year, and we administer all major tests, including the PSAT, SAT, and ACT, on campus.

Each year, we host a college fair in the spring and fall, with representatives from more than 100 colleges attending each one.
