College Counseling at Milton
Milton prepares young people to seek meaningful lifetime success, and that principle drives our college counseling program. We believe that the college process can help our students grow, both emotionally and socially. Through this process, we can help our students develop the tools to take on the world with gusto, resourcefulness, and joy.
Milton’s powerful, experienced, and highly collaborative team of professionals develop relationships with students and help them manage the core work as thoroughly and as thoughtfully as possible.
- Our program involves a lot of one-on-one conversation, humor wherever possible, and timely reminders about what is really important in students’ lives.
- Through continuous and accurate communication, we help ground students so that they can be their best, most dynamic selves and do their best work.
- In that scenario, creativity has a chance to thrive.
- Students can develop applications that capture their own power.

Sandi Dunnington, Assistant to the College Counseling Office
Sandi Dunnington has proven that you can go home again. Her first tenure in this office, after several years as an event planner for Sheraton, ended in 2003 when she took a hiatus for the births of her son and daughter. After that, Mrs. Dunnington worked for several years as assistant to the executive director and president for Exploration Summer Programs (EXPLO) in Norwood, Massachusetts. Then, when the administrative staff position opened up again in 2010, Mrs. Dunnington took pity on us and returned.
