Our son benefited from St Paul’s US Universities framework for an application for entry in 2019. This application tends to be extremely heavy, and especially complex. I can say that the resources put at his disposal were excellent, the entire team were completely available and resonant throughout the process, the knowledge of the process and of each university’s particularities was highly impressive. The overall choreography was absolutely outstanding. We are extremely grateful for a superb guidance, delivered to an exceedingly high standard.

2019 Leaver to his St Paul's School Counsellor
The US University counselling team at St Paul's School has been an incredible support all along the way of the application process. During the early stage of gathering information, the department was key in helping us as a family form a view of the various avenues that would suit a particular profile of student. During the application process, our son took full advantage of the support offered by his Colet Fellow and his counsellor to put together a successful application.
