College Counseling

88

With more than 15 years in the field of higher and K-12 education, I enjoy supporting adolescents on the pathway to college. This can be a super stressful time for them as they work to maintain good grades, take college exams, and try to figure out the bewildering college process. Identifying colleges that are a good fit both academically and socially is critical for students as is the process of building customized applications that will give them the greatest chance of success. I offer customized packages to support student needs through this process. Below is a sample.
