Frequently Asked Questions

We encourage parents and students to wait until junior year to immerse themselves in the college search process. The best college admission strategy takes full advantage of the first four years at Burroughs to focus on the strong development of knowledge and skills — in the classroom, the studio, the athletic field, and the greater community.

That said, there are some general topics and terms that come up before the formal college search and application process begins. This section addresses some of these topics and terms; more information can also be found in our College Counseling Handbook.
