High School Counseling

Graduates from CSB matriculate to excellent boarding, independent, and public high schools, and central to their success is finding a good match—our thirty-four graduates typically attend eighteen different schools. Competitive high schools have been receiving an increasing number of applications, yet many of our graduates gain admission to their first-choice school, but most importantly, our graduates and their families report that they are well prepared both academically and socially for the rigors of high school.

For students, the high school process begins with their diligent effort, working to their full potential both in and out of the classroom. In addition, the boys are offered a standardized testing course and attend a high school preparation elective that covers topics including balancing the school workload, high school interviews and stress management.

For families, the process begins at the end of the seventh grade with an information session followed by individual conferences with the Upper School Head. At the beginning of eighth grade, there is a formal family meeting and regular communications throughout the year. As the boys ready themselves for the challenges of high school, we are mindful not to lose sight of the greater eighth grade experience. They still have much to learn and room to grow. It is their final year with us, and we don’t want to miss a moment.
