Outcomes of a St. Mary’s Education
The College Counseling team works closely with each Upper School student, helping her discover colleges and universities which fit her academic, social, and environmental expectations, and guiding her through the entire application and selection process.
St. Mary's welcomes college representatives to schedule a virtual visit with students at 10:15 a.m. or
12:50 p.m. via REPVISITS.
Evenings with Colleges will be held virtually this year for students and families from St. Mary’s, Hutchison, and MUS. We have scheduled eleven events each centered around a theme and extended invitations to colleges and universities with strength in those programs (schools represented may be subject to change). Juniors and seniors and their families are welcome to attend any and all events from
6:30 – 7:30 p.m. More details with the link to join the meetings will be provided later.
