Tattnall Square Academy’s college counseling office provides a supportive environment for students and families to make informed choices involving appropriate college placement by providing resource materials, offering counsel, and assisting in the submission of applications. Recognizing that each child is unique, the office strives to help each student identify his or her strengths, values, and interests before determining which colleges best meet the student’s needs. Support is individualized, proactive, and empowers the student to take ownership of the process. College counseling at Tattnall Square begins early as an incoming freshman. The cumulative process includes parent and student meetings, extensive individual advising of juniors and seniors, and regular communication with students and families.
