College Matriculation

In the past four years, Potomac graduates have enrolled at more than 128 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.
