"Our students are prepared to lead no matter the path they choose."

Our college counseling program is a signature program at Linden Hall. We provide extraordinary support for our students throughout the entire process - from preparation through admission to some of the most selective colleges and universities in the world. Our goal is to make the college planning process one of discovery and possibility by providing the full scope of resources and depth of expertise our students and families need to reduce stress, make informed decisions, and be successful. 

Linden hall offers a comprehensive program that builds up on the personal and academic advising given in earlier years and begins formally during junior year. We believe that this process is an excellent opportunity for our girls to learn life skills that include the ability to:

  • be a self advocate
  • be self-reflective
  • work and communicate well with adults
  • manage expectations and responsibilities
  • navigate a complicated process to make informed decisions

We look forward to you joining us in the college planning process.

"The mad dash for college applications was stressful for everyone. But with the guidance of our new Director of College Counseling, along with our Head of School, we were able to receive the best support from the Linden Hall community throughout the process. We have received a plethora of acceptances and many more to come, along with some wonderful scholarship offers from top schools like Princeton and Northwestern."

"College Counseling really helped me because without it, I don't think I would have been able to even process all of my applications. A huge thank you to our college counselor for making my success possible!"

"Each student is given the responsibility of self-directing what they will study and how advanced their classes would be during their years at Linden Hall. This sense of responsibility and self-planning will be reflected in college and beyond, since it all comes to personal choices regarding what we do with our opportunities in school and in life; whether we seek out new routes for ourselves, rise to challenges, or give ourselves rest, we are faced with the responsibility to shoulder the weight of our decisions and follow through with them."
