We emphasize a forward-looking approach to finding the right fit for each student in their pursuit of higher education. We pride ourselves on challenging the traditional norm of selectivity based on prestige, ranking, or exclusivity, instead of asking students and families to choose a university based upon how well the institution matches the interests and identity of each student.
Our college counseling department offers practical assistance, including discovery, testing, and applications. In addition, we can help families apply for need-based financial aid and direct students towards merit-based scholarships while guiding each student toward a program of study that aligns with their strengths, interests, and goals.
While Bosque families are introduced to concepts about college early in the upper school years, the formal college entrance preparation begins in the junior year. This process includes a weekly college seminar with a counselor, covering everything from applications to entrance essays. Each year, more than 100 college and university representatives visit the Bosque campus. Juniors and seniors are encouraged to attend these sessions to learn more about a particular school.
