College Counseling


The RPS College Counseling Team is pleased to partner with students and families in one of the most exciting times in a young person’s life. Rutgers Prep counselors advise and assist students in identifying colleges that match their potential, and creating applications that showcase their strengths.

Beginning with educational programming for students and families in the 7th grade, our highly individualized approach encourages students to be thoughtfully engaged in the college search process as they make choices that fit their passions. We are dedicated to staying current with the latest trends in an ever-changing admissions landscape. We maintain close relationships with colleges; each year we travel across the country, networking with college and university admission officers and reminding them of all that our amazing RPS students can bring to their campuses. Last year, more than 130 college representatives met with both interested students and a member of our team here at Rutgers Prep!

100% of our graduates go on to attend four-year college, and their choices are reflective of their strong preparation. We believe that the college process is an opportunity for our students to identify their interests, define their goals, and shine.
