At Winsor, the college counseling process serves as an extension of a student's learning experience and values "intellectual curiosity, authentic engagement, and personal integrity.”
Our highly experienced and collaborative college counseling team encourages students to utilize the strong critical thinking skills they have developed at Winsor to investigate and evaluate a range of options where they will flourish.

Every student's journey through the college selection process is an individual one. Our goal is not only to assist Winsor students in finding their best next educational steps but also to support their self-discovery as they prepare to "lead lives of purpose as responsible, generous-minded people.”
