Contact Carter

With 10+ years of experience in college admissions and counseling, Carter Delloro is deeply passionate about the transition from high school to college. He is proud to be a part of the team at The Academy at Penguin Hall, whose philosophy toward the development of the whole self so closely matches his own educational philosophy.

Carter grew up in West Hartford, Connecticut, but moved out west to attend Pomona College in Claremont, California. There, he worked in the Admissions Office as a coordinator for prospective student visits and as a Senior Interviewer. This initial experience laid the foundation for his career in  college admissions and application counseling.. Upon graduation, he spent three years as a full-time Admissions Officer at Pomona, and one application cycle as a seasonal reader while attending graduate school.

After graduate school, Carter returned to higher education at Occidental College as the International Admissions Coordinator. In this position, he traveled the world and recruited at high schools, gaining insight into the experiences of students from all different backgrounds. Carter then accepted the position of college counselor with Taft School in Watertown, Connecticut, excited at the opportunity to guide students more proactively through the significant moment of transition from high school to college.

At Taft, Carter further developed his expertise in all aspects of college counseling. He provided guidance to students on preparing for college and successfully navigating the application process. During his time at Taft, Carter saw many of his students accepted to some of the nation’s leading public and private colleges and universities, including Brown University, Georgetown University, and Trinity College. Taft remained his home until he joined APH in August 2019. 

At APH, Carter appreciates the opportunity to provide students at all grade levels with proactive, holistic guidance on preparing for college. Each student is unique, and he helps every student craft a pathway to college that best serves their needs and aspirations.
