Secondary School Process

Our process is a partnership in which our families and students understand that our role is to listen, inform, and guide them throughout it. 

 The Secondary School Process unfolds as follows:

  • 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 seeking 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.
  • Together, a list of 5 targeted schools is curated.
