College Counseling

College Counseling

The Abbey College Counseling Office creates a supportive, empowering environment which encourages students to take ownership over the college process. We endeavor to work with students as individuals, to understand who they are beyond the classroom, and to help them find a college that will provide a challenging and comfortable environment for them on all levels. In addition to our extensive formal program, which starts in the Fifth Form, we also maintain an open-door policy to support students and families through this exciting time.

To schedule a visit to the college counseling office, please contact the Office Coordinator, Deanna Lloyd, at 401-643-1254.

The Binder

The College Counseling Binder serves as your guide from the moment you start thinking about college during Third Form year, through the application process, to the moment you deposit at the college of your choice at the end of Sixth Form. While it is not a substitute for the College Counseling Office, The Binder is a wonderful supplement to our programing, meant to help you stay on track and calm.  Learn More
