Mesrobian School’s outstanding College Counseling program includes a team of professionals with a very personalized focus on each student, as well as an emphasis on starting early.

Nixon. Along with the honor and distinction of being named a John Greenleaf Whittier Scholar comes the significant benefit of a $29,000 per year scholarship.
