College Counseling

A rigorous, college-preparatory education gives students the foundation to be active learners and critical thinkers. In their sophomore year, Moorestown Friends students begin a personalized, formal college counseling process that helps them understand their own strengths as they plan for their future. During the two-year process, our college counseling department develops, with each student, a personalized list of potential schools and holds a series of individual and group meetings with students and their parents. Typically, 100 percent of MFS graduates matriculate at four-year institutions.
