College Counseling

For Colleges

The College Counseling Office welcomes the opportunity to meet representatives from around the country and to learn more about your institution while also sharing information about our dynamic students.
To arrange your visit: Please contact our Administrative Coordinator, Karla Bingaman, at 717-328-6156 or We offer flexible visit times as well as on-campus interviews. The Davenport College Counseling Center at Landis House is located just off campus on East Seminary Street. (GPS address: 128 East Seminary Street, Mercersburg, PA 17236.)
If you are unable to visit in person, we invite you to explore our website to learn about our curriculum offerings and our unique senior capstone experiences.
All seniors are required to complete an independent and in-depth academic experience through one of two capstone classes: Mercersburg’s Advanced Program for Global Studies (MAPS) and Springboard. These programs are based around the principles of Challenge Based Learning and they compel students to synthesize and think critically about interdisciplinary topics. We believe these experiences prepare students for college and life in a global community.
Whether you are just learning about Mercersburg or you have become an old friend, we invite you to visit campus and to contact us with any questions!
