College Counseling

The college admission process is a daunting one. Understanding such, the counseling program at Hammond School is a personalized and supportive one, designed to help individuals navigate the complexities involved in the search and application process.

It is our hope that the information contained within Hammond's College Counseling webpages will demystify the process, allowing students and their families to concentrate more on finding a good match and less on the frustrations involved in understanding just how this creature called "college admissions" works.

We are excited about working with students during this time in their lives. Upper School students (and their parents) are encouraged to visit this page and its links often especially during their junior and senior years.
