College Counseling

Outcomes

At Cranbrook Schools, college preparation and college counseling mean more than preparing students for the “right” college. They mean preparing students for the college that is ideal for them – and then helping them find it. Our dedicated, full-time college counselors provide expert knowledge about the entire college admissions process.

Cranbrook graduates do very well in college. This "paves the way" for future Cranbrook students to be admitted to the most prestigious schools, because the example of success has been set. In short: college admission officers know and respect Cranbrook's academic excellence and are confident students will succeed after admittance.
