College Counseling

Students laugh while sitting on couches

Don't let a single moment define you — our college counseling program aims to help each student prepare for and succeed in their life beyond Carolina Friends School.

Each student’s post-graduation search process is an individual one, and our College Counselor, Stefan Waldschmidt, is here to help students and families navigate every step along the way. 

There’s a saying in college counseling: college is a match to be made, not a prize to be won. We believe the most crucial part of this process is finding the school that will be the best fit, inside and outside the classroom, for each student. Around 97% of our graduates attend the college or university of their choice — from large research universities to more intimate liberal arts colleges.

Through individual counseling with the student and family, informative programs, and school visits by college representatives, Stefan strives to help students identify the colleges or other programs that best suit their interests. Students are guided through all aspects of the college application process, from developing a college list and writing their essays to completing their applications and financial aid forms.
