  • Isaias de Los Santos '17 - Columbia University

    I am incredibly thankful for the faith Mr. Barnard had in my ability to attend my dream school, because I’ve always felt that positive reinforcement garners optimism.

  • Susanna Barger '17 - Alfred University

    Derryfield has helped me in the college process through exposure. It was a cumulative process; I was reminded of college fairs, test dates, and given bits of advice frequently that aided me in navigating the process.

  • Jack Miron '17 - Princeton University

    I’m really excited to explore the opportunities Princeton has to offer. For example, I hear they have an excellent juggling club! In all seriousness though, I know I’ll be pushed to my limits there, both intellectually and socially.

  • Sophia Tarpey '17 - Military Academy at West Point

    I’m excited beyond belief for the challenges in academics, military training, and physical fitness. I’m also scared though, not only for my years of actual service, but for my time at the academy where I will be expected to fail [to become stronger].

  • Ryan Goggin '16 - Brown University

    In the end I was accepted to both Princeton and Brown—something I would never have thought possible, without the encouragement of Mr. Barnard and the college counseling office.

  • Xinyu (Cynthia) Teng '16 - Worcester Polytechnic Institute

    It was Mr. Barnard, Mr. Lemire, and Ms. Josephson that helped me draw a blueprint of suitable colleges and make them come true. It was amazing how much we accomplished within such a limited time.

  • Joseph Costa '16 - Colby College

    In the end I chose the college that had both the best academic and athletic fit for me.
