Information for Families

INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES

Now that your student is applying to college, it is time to consider the role you will play in the application process. We have found that our most successful college matches occur when families allow their sons to lead the way. This is not to say that you should not be involved; of course you should, but how you participate is important. Recognize that things have changed since many of us went to school. In many ways, the process has become more complicated and certainly more competitive over the years. The way in which schools are measured, as well as their reputations and selectivity, may have changed since you were in school. The experience your son is looking for may differ from the one you had or the one you wanted for him. Try not to compare his application process to yours or to a sibling’s. Celebrate your son for who he is and for his unique achievements. Encourage him as he proceeds through the process, but be the voice of reason at the same time. We will be there with you, supporting your son as he finds his best college match. 


Following are some articles we find helpful for families going through the process for the first time, the last time, or anywhere in between, as well as some articles we find helpful for families navigating the college search during the Covid-19 pandemic. We will continue to update this page with current articles that we think might help as your sons navigate the college search process.
