College Counseling

MUS graduates achieve a 100 percent college matriculation rate each year, and they are regularly accepted to 125-150 colleges and universities throughout the United States and abroad.

But our college counseling process is not about numbers. It’s about finding the right fit. By encouraging young men to think deeply and intentionally, our counselors help students identify schools that will advance their goals, inspire them to reach their academic potential, and nurture their special interests.

Our work begins in the eighth grade with academic advising and continues throughout Upper School, as we help each boy recognize his strengths, define his aspirations, and take the steps needed to achieve his objectives. The formalized application process begins junior year, with regular group and individual college meetings and standardized testing. We encourage juniors to participate in mock interviews with alumni and faculty in the spring and summer. Parents are vital to the process, and we invite them to meet with counselors regularly throughout this process.

Our College Counseling team maintains strong relationships with colleges and universities across the country to make sure they understand the quality of our program and the potential of our students. In addition, we typically offer college tours for student groups each year.

A great fit is out there for every student, and we are committed to helping him find it – a college where he can continue to fulfill his potential and build upon the strong foundation he established at MUS.
