During their final year at TNS students participate in weekly Senior Seminars with their Advisors to prepare them for graduation requirements, develop their portfolios, apply and schedule visits to colleges, or explore and transition to careers.
Approximately 85% of TNS graduates attend college. Their transcripts, accomplishments and detailed portfolios position them quite competitively for admission to college — almost all TNS graduates have been accepted by the college of their first choice.
“Portfolios are the ultimate, inspired, trustworthy approach for applying to colleges – that is how colleges get to see you.” August Jaccaci, Retired Assistant to the Dean of Admissions at Harvard University
Our students have been accepted at over fifty colleges including Wheaton, Sarah Lawrence, Mt. Holyoke, Hampshire, Wheelock, Colby Sawyer, Bennington, Green Mountain, College of the Atlantic, Unity, Evergreen State, Mass.

More than eight hundred colleges and universities in the US do not require SAT or ACT scores for admission, so testing is a matter of choice. Tutoring and other assistance is provided for TNS students who wish to take the tests.
