Director of College Guidance Sanford Pelz ’71 reviews the college search process with a Browning family.

Individual Attention is the heart of the process

Browning School’s approach to college counseling puts the boy at the center of the experience. Our small size guarantees that every student gets the individual attention necessary to make his college process successful. 

We believe that there is no one perfect school for a boy and our process is designed to uncover institutions at which our students will truly thrive. Starting with their entry into the Upper School (Form III) boys and their families begin a relationship with the guidance office so that they can be well prepared for life beyond Browning. The annual college trip for both juniors and seniors provides a unique opportunity to visit a variety of different colleges and universities under the supervision of the Director of College Guidance and other faculty members.


Form VI class members received the results of their college acceptances, and we're pleased to report positive news once again this year! Please click here to see the matriculation list. Congratulations to the Class of 2019 on their achievements!

College Trip

Every fall, Browning’s Form V and Form VI students visit regional colleges and universities. Students will visit several different public and private institutions exposing them to the breadth and variety of schools available to them. Doing this with their peers and teachers sparks further discussion of what schools may be right for them and guarantees that they will be exposed to more than a dozen schools before they have submitted applications. 

Visits in the past five years have included: Bates College, Bowdoin College, Brown University, Colby College, Colgate University, Connecticut College, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Hamilton College, Johns Hopkins University, Middlebury College, University of Rochester, Syracuse University, Union College, University of Vermont, University of Virginia, Williams College and Yale University.
