Thanks to the College Counseling team, the college application process was painless and even fun for my son. They helped him get focused, explore his goals, and find the right fit for him.

College Counseling

Our Counselors serve students in the pursuit of excellence in their high school, college, academic, and personal development.

Because we recognize that the college application process can be a confusing and challenging time for high school students, our College Counselors take a personalized approach, meeting individually with each student and family throughout the four years. Our effort is make the college selection process an enriching time to learn more about our students’ goals and strengths. We encourage students to be engaged actively in their college searches, reflect carefully about their goals and aspirations, and make wise, informed decisions.

Our Personal Counselors provide comprehensive individual and family services to help students meet and overcome challenges, and gain the necessary skills to reach emotional and social maturity.

We believe all students can succeed and we support the pursuit of their goals by:

• Discovering purpose
• Encouraging self-actualization
• Promoting balance
• Teaching self-advocacy
