College Matriculation

In the past five years, Potomac graduates have enrolled at more than 145 colleges and universities across the United States and internationally. There is no one school for the Potomac student: some select small liberal arts institutions, others go on to big research universities. Some stay close to home, while others opt to go thousands of miles away.

The College Counseling Office is committed to helping students identify and gain admission to the college that’s right for them. Below is a list of colleges that have enrolled at least four Potomac students in the past five years; click here for the list of all schools where our students have gone since 2013.
