The 2013 Schuler Scholar Program Matriculation List has been released. To see the complete list, click here.
Schuler College Counselors and program staff provide extensive college counseling services to Scholars and their families. In an effort to expose Scholars and parents to selective colleges, Scholars tour colleges starting the beginning of their junior year and visit roughly 20 institutions by their senior fall. In addition, during the summer after sophomore year, every Scholar is required to attend a 2-4 week summer college program.
Throughout Scholars' high school careers, Schuler College Counselors meet regularly with each Scholar and family to discuss schools that best match the Scholar’s interests, needs and academic ability. Scholars enroll in an 8-week ACT test preparation course and participate in after-school college counseling courses culminating in a three day “College Admissions Boot Camp” that takes place over the summer after junior year. The College Counseling staff also facilitates sessions on the financial aid process and the transition to university life.
Schuler Scholars matriculate to private, competitive colleges and universities. Typical Schuler colleges enroll fewer than 10,000 undergraduate students and offer a liberal arts education. The SSP uses the Barron’s rating system and the Princeton Review ranking system to determine the best fit schools for Schuler Scholars. SSP schools fall in one of four categories: Most Competitive (includes the Ivies, Stanford and the top liberal arts colleges), Highly Competitive, Very Competitive and Competitive.
In 2013, 79% of Schuler Scholars matriculated to schools that are Most Competitive, with 15% and 4% matriculating to Highly Competitive and Very Competitive schools respectively. The average selectivity (Princeton Review) of Schuler colleges has increased from 87 to 95.8 since 2007.
