College Advising Program
The mission of the Beaufort Academy College Advising office is to help students gain admission to the college or university that best fits their academic and personal goals. In our effort to support students and parents through the college process, we are guided by the philosophy of Frank Sachs, former president of the National Association of College Admissions Counselors, that “college is a match to be made, not a prize to be won.” The college admission process is promoted as a natural consequence of a quality education. The College Advisor works hand in hand with the Upper School faculty to ensure that all students receive instruction and develop skills that prepare them for success in a college environment after graduation from BA.
The process of selecting and gaining admission to college marks a major transition in the life of every BA student. Upper School is a time for students to accept greater challenges in the classroom and on the playing fields, to become campus leaders, and to plan for life’s next steps. The College Advisor’s role is to guide students through this period of transition and to provide support to students and families as they make their way through this exciting--and often overwhelming--process. The College Advising Office is a resource for information about the ever-changing and complex landscape of college admission.
Please see the College Advising Handbook in the side tab for a comprehensive guide to the college process at BA.
100% of our graduates are accepted to 4-year colleges and universities.
