An effective college search must begin with an honest self-assessment.
The more our students know about themselves and their needs, passions, and goals, the better equipped they will be to make important decisions that lie ahead. The college process is an exciting time for students. For many, it is the first time that they are being asked to take inventory of their own strengths and talents apart from their peers and other adults in their lives. This “process” is a journey and each student will have their own distinct timeline.
In college counseling, we prioritize individual attention and the connection we create with each student. Together we will develop a broad and well-balanced range of schools that reflect and match each students’ strengths, capabilities, and desires. Ultimately, we hope to see our students make confident and informed decisions when it comes to college matriculation.
