The Philosophy of our Comprehensive College Counseling Program
Our goal is clear and simple: to prepare every student at The Pine School to be a competitive candidate for entrance to the college or university of his or her choosing.We believe that the journey is as important as the destination and nowhere is that notion more appropriately applied than the college process. Our program is based on the notion that college is a match to be made and not a prize to be won.
