McGehee understands the importance of college preparation. The college experience is an opportunity to continue the intellectual, moral and social growth begun in our Upper School. Our graduates thrive in any number of colleges where they are challenged.

In an increasingly competitive admissions climate, McGehee’s college admission office does a magnificent job guiding our students not only to attend the best university they can, but to also choose one that matches their interests. Upon entering high school freshman year, the girls understand the importance of their four years in Upper School as it pertains to the college admission process, and they also understand the necessity and importance of balance. Our students know that when they arrive on the college campus, the door does not close behind them, but many doors open in front of them. They leave McGehee with an open mind, rather than a full-fledged idea of who they will become, and our girls realize that college is about taking the risks that will form their future.
