Secondary School Process

Transitioning from Allen-Stevenson into high school is an exciting process. Our well-prepared students are met with new and exciting academic challenges and look forward to cultivating new friendships and social experiences. Families and students understand that we are here to listen, inform, and guide them in this process.  

    • Neal Kamsler, Director of Secondary School Counseling

  • Beginning in the spring of 7th Grade, the Director of Secondary School Counseling meets with families to outline the process and identify the qualities of the best school for each individual student.
  • Students articulate what they are looking for in a secondary school and with the support of the Director and their families, curate a list of schools.
  • Test preparation, testing and practice interviews all take place at Allen-Stevenson. 
  • There is an ongoing dialogue with Allen-Stevenson graduates, and with public, private and boarding schools to keep current on what each school offers our students and the success of an Allen-Stevenson graduate.

Mr. Kamsler was Head of the Upper School at Allen-Stevenson for 22 years, during which one of his responsibilities was the secondary school counseling process. Over that time, he developed strong relationships with the admissions offices at both New York area day schools and boarding schools across the country. After leaving A-S, Neal spent two years with the Oliver Scholars program as their Director of Placement. We are delighted that he has returned as Director of Secondary School Counseling.
