The College Counseling Office individualizes the college admission process for each student during his or her journey from ninth grade through graduation. This personalized attention helps each student find his or her best fit within an often-overwhelming number of college options.

To keep students challenged and engaged in their academic journeys, they offer numerous honors and Advanced Placement courses.
