An important outcome of your Solebury education is being accepted to a college of your choice, yet the process of preparing and applying for college can be overwhelming. This is why Solebury focuses intently on the process of preparing for testing and college applications practically from the day you arrive on campus.
As with all things Solebury, our college counseling process is highly personalized. 我们了解你的优势和新兴的激情, and we encourage you to expand your academic and extracurricular interests to strengthen your college resume. 同时, our full-time college counselor introduces you to colleges that may be a good fit—sometimes right here on campus, as a large number of colleges and universities come to speak with our students in small-group settings.
A key question is: Which test should I take, the SAT or the ACT? We work in partnership with Kaplan Test Prep to introduce you to both tests so we can find which one suits you best, 特别是如果你名单上的大学会接受其中任何一个.
