College Counseling

Welcome to Urban College Counseling!

Attending college is a continuation of many years of exploring new ideas, being challenged, working hard, making friends, and getting to know oneself a little bit better. At Urban School, we create a college admissions process that acts as a pedagogical extension of a student’s time at Urban: one of self-discovery and unique to each student.

The college process itself is one of growing up. Urban’s core values foreground learning beyond the walls of a formal classroom. We see the college application process as one such opportunity.

We hope that the information on these college-related pages helps answer questions, assists with your planning, and addresses any concerns you might have. And, please feel free to contact us in the College Counseling Office. We look forward to working with you!

Lauren, Elizabeth, Andy & Leslie
