Implicit in the Ashley Hall college counseling services is our wish to have each girl find a college that is compatible with her goals, interests, and abilities. Toward this end, we offer them unlimited one-on-one meetings to discuss and refine their options, as well as class meetings, college night programs, and encouragement to meet with upwards of 50 college representatives who visit Ashley Hall annually. This is an ongoing process beginning in the ninth grade and picking up in earnest in the eleventh grade. As juniors, all girls meet regularly with Ashley Hall's Director of College Counseling, Amanda Murrell, to determine the colleges that will best meet their goals. With 100% college matriculation for our graduating seniors, Ashley Hall places a great deal of importance on finding the right university for each girl. We work individually with students on applications, essays, and scholarship applications. The needs of each of our seniors varies, but we are committed to helping families with their individual requirements.
In the ever-changing college admissions arena, Ashley Hall girls fare very well, finding that upon graduation they have a broad choice of acceptances to colleges and universities both domestic and international. Our seniors explore a variety of colleges and universities, typically applying to over 75 different colleges ranging from in-state public and private institutions to colleges such as the Ivies, Duke, University of Chicago, University of St Andrews (Scotland), University of Virginia, University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), Washington and Lee, Georgetown, and others. Merit scholarship dollars in excess of two million were offered to the 29 member class of 2011.
