College Counseling

Finding Best Fit Colleges & Universities

Life extends far beyond Davidson Day. For our future-ready graduates, the college search process is as empowering as it is expansive.

For Upper School families, the college search process begins from the moment they join our community, which values academic excellence, collaboration, creativity, and character. We prepare our Patriots for success in the college search, admission, and enrollment process, and for success in their chosen majors, leadership roles, and social experiences.
Our college counselors welcome more than 80 college admission representatives from across the globe to campus each year and assist every student in an individualized, student-centered search process beginning during their 9th Grade year. The result of this one-on-one approach to identify best-fit schools is clear: a great experience for our alumni, who are prepared for success in college and beyond.
