Dr. Lowe and his team of admissions advisors visited Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. Rated by Niche as: #1 Best Boarding High School in N.J., #1 Best High School Private School in N.J. and #5 Best Boarding High School in America.
Dr. Lowe had the opportunity to discuss Lawrenceville and its admissions policies with Samuel Washington, Senior Associate Dean of Admission; Director of Multicultural Affairs.
Lawrenceville is one of the Ten Schools and what makes it unique among other elite New England schools is that it is only one hour from Manhattan. Its enrollment is 817 students, but appears as a smaller school because of its unique house system.
Dr. Lowe discussed the admissions criteria for applicants and the “Lawrenceville Effect”: “Bright, young people enter Lawrenceville. Four years later, they emerge, not only self-aware, but other-aware.”
Lawrenceville is one of the most prestigious, elite and highly selective boarding schools in the world. Its acceptance rate is 19%.

The Power of Our School Visits: Dr. Lowe and his network of admissions advisors continually visit top U.S. boarding schools.
