College Counseling Services at Barnstable
Barnstable Academy has a dedicated College Advisor who walks each of our high school students and their family through the college selection and application process. We are proud to boast our impressive college acceptances and scholarships awarded to our students.
In the last two years alone, Barnstable Academy students have earned over $3 million in merit-based college scholarships.
We are proud to be a college prep school where nearly 90% of graduates go on to a four-year college or university, 5% attend two-year programs, and another 5% take advantage of a gap year. Our students have been accepted to an impressive roster of two- and four-year colleges and universities.
SAT and ACT Test Prep
Earnest preparation for college often begins with the SAT and ACT. Our college prep school offers a test preparation course which takes place during March and April each year, and ensures that our high school students are fully prepared. The twelve-session course encompasses the math, critical thinking, and writing components of the exam. In keeping with our philosophy of education, classes are small so that students can maximize their potential.
The College Admissions Process
At Barnstable, we start the college application process early. Students are given the opportunity to receive tremendous feedback on their essays and applications by our College Advisor, Rhoda Kirschenbaum.
Early College Program
Some of our high school students are ready to tackle college-level material as juniors or seniors, and for those students we offer an Early College Program. This transitional program allows students to take one or more three-credit courses during the afternoon at William Paterson University. In nearly every instance, a student who is successful in these courses is allowed to transfer the credit to his or her college upon graduation from our college prep school.
Roster of Colleges
