College Counseling

Schuler College Counselors and program staff provide extensive college counseling services to Schuler Scholars and their families. In an effort to expose Scholars and parents to selective colleges, Scholars begin their college search process by taking part in a two-to-six week summer college program the summer between sophomore and junior year. Program staff take Schuler Scholars to visit colleges starting the beginning of junior year. Scholars visit at least 15 colleges and universities by the fall of their senior year. 

College Counselors meet regularly with each Scholar and family, particularly during junior and senior year, to discuss colleges and universities that best match the Scholar’s academic performance, interests and needs. During junior year Scholars enroll in a test preparation course and participate in after-school college counseling courses culminating in a three-day College Admissions Boot Camp that takes place over the summer before senior year. The College Counseling staff also facilitates sessions and provides one-on-one support regarding the financial aid application process.

Schuler Scholars matriculate to some of the best colleges and universities in the country. Typical Schuler colleges offer small classes, strong academic and personal support systems and competitive financial aid packages that minimize loans and burdensome student debt. Typical Schuler colleges are highly ranked by publications including Barron's Guide, US News & World Report, and the Princeton Review.
