College Counseling

Overview

College Counseling

Sacramento Country Day School provides unparalleled one-to-one college counseling to each student in our High School. Our two highly respected college counselors have a combined 20 years in the field, both in high school and college admissions. This breadth of experience and Country Day’s respected academic preparation make us a “known quantity” across the country. Selective colleges know that Country Day graduates are well prepared to succeed in college and beyond.

With an average senior class of 38 students, our two counselors thus serve 19 students each – a ratio unmatched in any school in the Sacramento area.

100 percent of Country Day graduates attend four-year institutions of higher learning, including schools in the University of California system along with many of the nation’s most well known and widely respected colleges and universities. Of note, students in the class of 2017 were offered more than one million dollars in financial assistance in the form of merit scholarships, nearly $35,000 per student.
