College Counseling

It is the mission of Lovett’s College Counseling team to work with students toward self-examination, goal-setting, decision-making, and self-advocacy in the search for options that will allow them to continue their learning beyond Lovett’s gates.

The team offers grade-specific programming and resources starting in ninth grade, with more dedicated and personalized meetings and events starting in tenth grade and lasting through senior year. Our impressive team of college counselors has more than 35 years of college admission experience at 12 different colleges and universities across the country, and shares more than 45 years of college counseling experience.

The college counseling office is one of lovett's real strengths. they were so wonderful during my child's junior and senior years. We are so grateful for their assistance and knowledge.
