Wooster School admits students of any race, color, sexual orientation, religion, nationality, or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the School.

College Guidance

Our purpose is to provide individualized, deliberate, student-focused support to help students enroll in a great-fit college where they will be challenged, will grow, and will thrive.

Some of the ways we accomplish this are by:

  • Providing family and one-on-one counseling as well as curriculum-based seminar courses for juniors in their spring semester.
  • Guiding students and families in creating a list of schools that will fit the student's unique talents and interests and that will be a great fit academically, socially, and financially.
  • Advising students and parents on standardized testing, college essays, the application process, interviews, college visits, and financial aid.
  • Working closely with and assisting seniors as they complete their essays and applications, ensuring they meet all deadlines and submit top-notch applications.
  • Hosting over 100 college and university representatives on campus in the fall to meet with students and to learn about Wooster's unique and engaging community.
