College Counseling

Marty Elkins

Associate Director of College Counseling

I have spent my life in schools as a teacher, coach, dorm parent, Dean of Students, Head of School and Director of College Counseling, the last being my favorite role. I graduated from Williams College, earned an MAT from the University of New Hampshire and a CAS from the Harvard School of Education. I am committed to great schools, places which focus on their mission and values, and serving students and families. I retired from my last school, Ransom Everglades in 2018, to enjoy golfing, gardening and hiking, and have most recently volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate, Guardian Ad Litem for abused and neglected children in New Hampshire. I decided to return to work for Ransom Everglades because I am excited by the school’s vision to broaden its outreach and better support and guide students in finding their diverse and myriad opportunities beyond high school.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
