Preparation for college is Wyoming Seminary's primary mission, and its comprehensive college guidance program is designed to help students find the college or university that is right for them. Wyoming Seminary's team of eight college counselors begins meeting with students in tenth grade, getting to know them well as they embark on this highly personalized journey together.

Virtually all graduates pursue their education in four-year programs; eighty-two percent of graduates from the Class of 2011 gained admission to "very," "highly" or "most competitive" colleges and universities.
