At Pingry, we believe our extraordinary students are bound for extraordinary experiences.
Pingry graduates enroll in colleges and universities that meet their ambitions—and they have the courage, the character, and the skills to cultivate a better world. To ensure the brilliance, rigor, and sheer joy fostered inside our classrooms, out on our fields, and within our music and performing arts programs will be continued through higher education and beyond, our College Counseling team works with each of our students to match them with colleges and universities that meet their ambitions. At The Pingry School, we provide our students with a foundation of Excellence and Honor, and our thoughtful and collaborative college counselors help our students secure a future where their celebrated multitudes of excellence can meet new challenges, discover new experiences, and revel in meeting the world beyond.
It’s the journey, not the destination, that matters most. And we are your enthusiastic guides, ready to help you discover your home after Pingry. We guide students as they consider a range of options, teach them how to put together a college application that reflects their beliefs and talents, and help them choose the path that suits them best."

The Pingry School has six college counselors, each of them able to tailor the admissions process to every student navigating the college admissions process. Our counselors consider individual strengths and help navigate how students can tell their story in an authentic and compelling manner. Additionally, they provide strong insight into the application and selection process and bring a wide range of knowledge on where each particular student will flourish.
