Gatehouse Guidance helps students through the college application process, from creating a list of good-fit colleges to deciding which admission offer to accept.  A special emphasis is placed on using the college essay as a vehicle for self-exploration and to highlight the unique spirit of each applicant.


Susan Dyment

In a field where experience counts, Susan Dyment uses her extensive background in college guidance to match students with excellent, appropriate schools. She sees the application process as a journey of self-discovery for the student.  The counseling services begin with a private meeting to provide an overview of the college admissions process. During the first meeting students and their parents receive a personalized academic plan, testing advice, as well as guidance on extra-curricular activities and summer plans that will enhance the college application. After this first meeting, families decide whether to continue with the complete program.
