The New Hampton College Office is committed to the idea that the college process requires close communication and cooperation among the three major players: student, family, and counselor. We understand that the process has become increasingly competitive and complex, and it is our role as counselors to help families navigate the sometimes perplexing college admission landscape.
Our counseling team consists of two full-time counselors, as well as an assistant director who focuses solely on the athletic recruitment process for our students. While we do not begin working one-on-one with students until their junior year, we will engage with our ninth and tenth graders each year, and students are always welcome to come up to our office should they have any questions during their time at New Hampton.
Our goal is to help students reach a greater awareness of who they are, so that they, in turn, can find colleges that are good matches for them. Along the way, students will continue to build upon the valuable “soft skills” they have already developed at New Hampton: decision making, problem-solving, self-advocacy, self-reflection, and resilience. Our process is built around supportive, individualized counseling that is student-centered, knowing that while the student is in the driver’s seat, there is always help along the way.
