This way to college

Each student has her own post-Purnell journey, whether that involves attending college right after graduation, deferring to complete a gap year program, or entering the workforce. Students and families work with the College and Career Counselor to receive guidance and encouragement each step of the way. We also welcome college admissions representatives to campus frequently. These visits are open to all students.

In addition, we offer a speaker series of professionals in a variety of fields to expose students to the wide range of careers and pursuits available to them. These presentations are also offered to the entire student body.

2019 Seniors

Purnell Graduates are Prepared for Success

Our graduates are confident, responsible self-advocates of their learning. As they are familiar with the boarding experience, they understand what it is like to live and work well with others in a residential campus setting. With all of this preparation and experience during their high school years, it is no surprise that Purnell has a 100 percent college acceptance rate.
