College Success

The Robinson School experienced, administrative team has led to a 100% college acceptance rate, with students earning offers of enrollment and scholarships to universities across the country.
Among universities everywhere, TRS is recognized for its emphasis on the intellectual process, for its focus on the importance of critical thinking and classroom discussions that invite multiple perspectives, and for writing that is clear, persuasive, and imaginative.
While academic prowess and leadership are essential ingredients in the success of our student athletes, TRS college advising process is crucial in matching the individual to the institution and in helping students to realize their resources and understand their options.
TRS students benefit from a comprehensive college advising program that begins early in their post graduate year and continues until the end of the admission process.
Early in fall, each scholar’s academic interests, strengths, and goals are evaluated to determine suitable choices. By working with an college advisor, students learn about application approaches that enhance their chances for admission.
A diverse range of colleges and universities send representatives to TRS throughout the school year to talk with prospective students.
