Private schools are known for their impressive academics, vast extracurriculars, notable alumni network, and more often than not, their competitive environment. When it comes to US college admissions, this competition becomes greater than ever.
However, private school education does not equate to acceptance to top universities. There’s a lot more that goes into a college application…download our guide to learn what you can be doing now!
At Crimson, we have a lot of experience working with top private school students, and we are thrilled that their admissions rates to top colleges like the Ivy League are disproportionately higher than their peers. This guide outlines what you should know as a private school parent, and what steps you can take to increase your child's chances of admission. The guide includes information on:
Learn why niche academics at private schools (Shakespearean English, Theology, Dutch Golden Age Art History, etc.) don't always match up to standardized curriculums.
Private school students are held to higher standards as they typically have access to more resources and support.
There are only so many spots in each incoming class that universities have a threshold of how many students they should admit from each top boarding school.
Oftentimes, college counselors are used to focusing on competitive, local universities which is the majority of their scope. However, local advising doesn’t always cut it for ambitious students!
