For Students & FamiliesOur college counselors work alongside students and families during every step of the college admission process. Browse our resources below for helpful information.

The college counselors are very supportive. They want you to make the decision for yourself, and they provide the right amount of attention for that. They're also good at finding schools. The school I'm going to wasn't really on my radar before I started working with my college counselor, and it's the ideal school for me. Kent Denver Alum
