Marlborough School - An independent day school for girls grades 7-12

College Counseling

College counseling at Marlborough School is a partnership that brings students, parents, and college counselors together for the support and encouragement of each student as she invests her efforts in college planning.

Through the college search and admissions process, we strive to:

- Assist students in making appropriate college choices
- Foster student initiative, independence, and self-understanding
- Strengthen decision-making and goal-setting skills

Our primary objective is to address each girl's individual college needs and ensure that Marlborough students are active, energetic, and investigative participants in the process.

College Tour

Each year, Marlborough provides an opportunity for sophomores and juniors to participate in the college tour during the School’s spring break. The tour is run exclusively by Marlborough administrators, allowing staff to customize the experience for our students. Candidates at the beginning of the college search process find this to be a wonderful opportunity to learn more about what they want from a college. Students will visit an assortment of colleges and universities representing a wide variety of choices in terms of size, location, and selectivity. More importantly, your daughter will learn to quickly identify exactly which institutions offer those features most meaningful to her. In early fall, an updated tour itinerary and student sign-up schedule will be mailed to all participating families.
