In partnership with the college counseling team, Marymount seniors and their families prepare for the future. The program is carefully adapted to the needs of each student, ensuring that each Marymount senior finds a college suited to her specific interests and abilities.
Marymount students and their parents receive individualized guidance through the complexities of the college admissions process. Graduates attend a broad range of institutions of higher learning including large research universities and small liberal arts colleges, both in the United States and abroad. Many enroll in highly specialized programs including performing and fine arts, engineering, and pre-med.

The college application process officially begins in Class XI and continues through Class XII. Working closely with the college counseling team, students and families can expect to follow the following general timeline:

Class XI:
  • Compile a preliminary list of college options after conducting research and visiting college campuses
  • Begin to explore college application resources and scholarship opportunities
  • Take the SAT or ACT in the spring
  • Begin to craft personal statements and a draft of the Common Application

Class XII:
  • Attend an application procedures overview and financial aid workshop
  • Prepare a final, balanced, and varied college application list
  • Meet with college representatives visiting Marymount
  • Continue visiting college campuses and schedule interviews when available
  • Write and edit the personal statement and required supplemental essays
  • Retake standardized tests (only if necessary)
  • Attend Marymount's essay and application workshop day
  • Prepare for life in college, from handling complex social and academic situations to exploring future career paths
