College Counseling

COMPREHENSIVE, student-centered and MATCH DRIVEN

At Collegiate, we help students build their story, not just tell it. An aim such as ours requires early, deep, and meaningful engagement with all involved that leads to a comprehensive understanding of our students’ strengths and interests. As our focus narrows on the college search, selection, and application process, our students find themselves right where they have always been in our program–at the center. We empower our students with rich resources, excellent advice, and sophisticated, data-driven insight into the world of admissions, demystifying it all for our families. The bottom line is that our approach maximizes options and opportunities for our students.
