College counseling at Pilgrim School consist of offering a highly personalized, student-centered college application process focused on helping each student find the best college fit based on his or her academic profile, aspirations, talents, and interests.

At Pilgrim School 100% of our students graduate and go on to some of the most selective colleges in the country, including University of Notre Dame, Ivy League universities, USC, and University of California campuses, as well as top liberal arts colleges like Williams and Pomona. We measure success not just by the number of acceptances, but by the appropriateness of each match.

In the fall, admission representatives from multiple colleges and universities visit Pilgrim School and meet with our students in small group sessions during FLEX block. During these visits students are able to learn more about the colleges and have the opportunity to get to know the individual who will most likely read their applications.
