College Guidance

KYHS students have successfully enrolled at and graduated from a range of highly selective colleges, religious and secular, public and private, in-state and out. The vast majority of our graduates matriculate at a college where they will find a considerable, engaged Modern Orthodox community. 

College Guidance at KYHS begins as early as freshman year and continues through graduation and beyond.

Freshmen receive early exposure to college entrance exams to familiarize themselves with standardized tests.

Freshman and sophomore students meet both individually and in small groups with College Guidance counselors for academic advising and to begin the college application experience. Their academic performance and results of standardized tests are analyzed annually to make sure that each student is appropriately challenged and is meeting his or her full intellectual potential.

College Guidance is more intensive for upperclassmen as juniors and seniors are guided step-by-step through the college exploration and application process, from making the most of campus visits, preparing for interviews, and crafting meaningful college application essays, to determining which colleges meet individual abilities and aspirations, academically and religiously. Our seasoned College Guidance professionals provide a variety of seminars and workshops for students and parents at every grade level. Topics include Deciphering the Results of PSAT, SAT, ACT, and AP Exams; The Nuts and Bolts of Applying to College; and Financing Your College Education, among others.

The College Guidance Department is committed to ensuring that every graduate attends an institution of higher learning that will build on the strong foundations set during their formative years at KYHS.
