Welcome to GA's College Counseling program! Navigating today’s college application process requires careful planning and preparation. Germantown Academy's team of college counselors educates students and parents about the world of college admissions so they can make informed choices that result in matriculation to a college or university where the student can continue to grow intellectually and emotionally.
College counseling at GA provides two essential services to students: advising and counseling. As advisors, college counselors educate students about the college search and application processes. As counselors, college counselors develop relationships with their students, listen to their goals, aspirations, and concerns, and encourage them to explore colleges that will help them to continue the process that they have begun at GA, of becoming their best selves.
