College Counseling

The college admissions process is a partnership venture that brings
students, parents, and college counselors together for the support and encouragement of each student. Throughout the process, the overriding goal of the college counseling office is to help students look within themselves for clues to what is important in the search for an appropriate post-high school experience.

An advocate for students.
A partner with families.

During their sophomore year, every student is assigned a College Counselor to guide, advocate, and support students and families through the college admissions process. Bryn Mawr Online families are also invited to attend a range of College Counseling events and workshops throughout the year.

Where do our graduates go to college?

The 80 talented and motivated students of the Class of 2020 will attend 56 colleges and universities across the U.S. 12 student athletes will play sports at the collegiate level.

The end goal of the college counseling process at Bryn Mawr is for each girl to find the right "fit" – a program that will be both challenging and fulfilling. Interim Director of College Counseling Courtney Watkins expressed her pride in the Class of 2020 for their achievements during this challenging spring saying, "This is a truly remarkable group of girls and definitely a class I'll never forget. We know the future holds a few more unknowns than usual, but if the Class of 2020 has proven anything in these last couple months, it's how resilient and adaptable you are. Have confidence that wherever you go and whoever you'll be, you're going to be more amazing than you ever thought possible.”
