Under ordinary circumstances, the college admissions process can be daunting for students and their families. However, as we continue to face the defining global health crisis of our time, this process is continually undergoing significant changes, leaving many wondering where to turn.

Shipley’s college counseling program is as much about self-discovery as it is about choosing a college.

At Shipley, the process can yield unexpected lessons and results. We asked six members of Shipley’s Class of 2019 to reflect on their college counseling experience and share what they learned.
