College Counseling

We approach the college process with the philosophy that each student comes to this moment at a different time and with a different story to tell. Our expectation is that the student will own the process: this is their time to explore options and begin to map out their future. We view ourselves as guides in this journey: we are here to counsel, question and challenge, suggest and educate. Students, along with their families, will ultimately determine their direction, program of study, and college of choice.

We value the opportunity to provide our students with individual attention and support throughout the college process. We encourage open, honest, direct, and frequent communication with students and parents.

We guide students with knowledge that comes from years of professional experience in college advising, tracking our alumni and their application data, and following national trends affecting college admissions.

By working together as a team, our goal is to ensure that every student is successful. Hopefully, in the end we will all come through this process learning something new, whether it is about specific colleges, higher education, or ourselves.
