Matriculation List

We are thrilled to share that 34 seniors at King School have been accepted to their first-choice college or university and have already committed to attend. 

This tremendous achievement represents years of dedication and hard work by the students, their teachers, and families, as well as the tireless commitment of our college counselors. We could not be prouder of everyone involved. To date, our matriculation reflects an impressive and diverse list of colleges and universities that best fit the unique interests and goals of our students. 

In its four-year developmental approach, the College Counseling Department empowers students to reflect on their capabilities and ambitions in preparing for life beyond King. The collaboration between our counselors, students, parents, teachers, and colleges helps students find the right match in higher education, as evidenced by the successes we celebrate together.  

Our students have done more than develop skills; they have become passionate learners and caring citizens. Our graduates land in college confident and prepared. More importantly, they arrive courageous and ready to make an impact in their communities.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021

When students and families engage in the college application process using their values, interests, and goals as foundational elements, they can better target colleges and universities where they will thrive. Success at King is measured in many different ways. One of the ways that King School sets a better standard for both the experience and outcomes of education is that every day our students have the opportunity to discover and forge their unique paths to excellence as we teach, guide, and cheer them on. The Class of 2021 has achieved success in the classroom, on the athletic fields, and on the stage; now they are preparing to pursue lives of ongoing inquiry and purpose in college. We are so fortunate to benefit from the vision and leadership of our Director of College Counseling, who has worked with her College Counseling team to develop a four-year developmental program that focuses on empowering students as they reflect on their capabilities and ambitions. The partnership between our counselors, students, parents, teachers, and colleges certainly helps King students discover the most competitive college fit, as evidenced by the successes we celebrate together.

King's four-year developmental program enables each student to discover the most competitive fit

Hear from members of the class of 2019 as they announce their college acceptances.



"I learned so much at King, particularly efficient study skills and how to write correctly and effectively. At college, I look forward to utilizing these skills, among many others that King has helped me foster."


"King helped me realize that I can successfully pursue my core classes plus hobbies and activities. Now I feel prepared to experiment in college with majors and exciting courses."


"At King, I learned the importance of staying true to myself and valuing unique perspectives. In college, I look forward to applying the life skills and lessons I’ve gained at King to pursue my study of Communications."


"I am so grateful to King School; it really was a team effort from my teachers to the Administrators to my college counselor, Mr. Volain. My teachers not only prepared me academically for the college application process, but also took the time to get to know me as a person. The college guidance process starts early at King, as teachers set high expectations for their students and create a plan to help you meet those expectations. Princeton was my dream and they helped make it a reality. I am confident that King has thoroughly prepared me for college and I am excited to be challenged academically and athletically at Princeton. I found King to be a warm and welcoming environment where students support fellow students. I came to King in 10th grade and felt instantly comfortable. My teachers and friends are extremely understanding of my challenging academic and athletic schedule, and support me so that I can thrive in both aspects. Also, our new Head of School, Dr. Karen Eshoo, is an energetic and collaborative leader who is off to a strong start. I believe she has a great vision for King's future and I look forward to coming back to visit King and seeing the growth of the King community."



"I feel very prepared for my next step at Colby College thanks to the King College Counseling department. My College Counselor was always there to help and calm me down and hand out chocolate when I got stressed. I really appreciate King's four year approach to guiding kids through the whole college process as it really helped me. I can't wait to be in Maine next year!"



"From compiling my list to celebrating my acceptance, King college counseling was with me each step of the way. I've been at King since PreK and I'm thinking about studying Philosophy and Economics in college. I'm beyond excited to begin the next chapter of my life at Duke University."



"I was offered the perfect amount of flexibility and support from the College Counseling office. I never felt like my wants were being over powered, and Ms. Landis was always incredibly insightful and leading me towards success. I am confident that William & Mary is the perfect school for me! I would not have been able to make it to this point without her guidance."



"I would not be where I am today without the help of my college counselor, Ms. Prince, and all the members of the college counseling office. They provided me with all the information I needed and more. Thanks to King, I look at the academic rigor ahead and feel prepared for what is to come. King has taught me a lot and has given me the skills and techniques I will need to succeed in college. Overall, King has been a huge part of my journey to college, and without their outstanding support and guidance, both with academics and outside commitments to rowing, I would not be the person I am today."



"The King College Counseling office has been very supportive. They made sure that I was confident in meeting my deadlines and helped me put my best self forward. I love PreCalculus BC and have formed a lifelong mentorship with my teacher, Dr. K. She made me feel confident in my abilities not only as a math student but as a student in general and made sure that I pushed myself to my full abilities. I am thankful for King's encouragement and I am thrilled to become a WashU Bear next year!"



"King College Counseling provided me with all the resources I needed in order to be confident when I "hit send." One of the impressive aspects of this process at King is that it starts as early as freshman year. Whether it be editing supplements, discussing strategy, or calming nerves, the counselors' doors were always open; a steady support system in a time of uncertainty."
