College Counseling

Finding the right fit for the future

Graduates of The Bush School are sought after by a wide range of highly selective colleges and universities. Each year, admissions officers from more than 100 colleges and universities visit The Bush School to meet with students.

Bush's College Counseling Office guides students through a process of carefully identifying and applying to colleges and universities that suit each individual student. This demystifies the college admissions process and allows students and their families space for reflection as they evaluate the diversity and quality that exists within a wide range of institutions of higher education.

The combination of the strength of Bush's program and the personalized, pragmatic approach of the College Counseling Office gives Bush students their choice of undergraduate options.
