College Counseling

Supporting you to find your best fit

We support each student in their college journey, believing that the “best fit” is our ultimate goal, not the hype around national rankings. While there is increased stress and anxiety around college admissions today, we believe that this transitional period for our students can be enlightening, enriching and downright fun. (Yes, we love our jobs!) 

College Counseling offers a robust college-preparatory program that supports EC students during all four years of high school. Our support services include:

  • Individual meetings with juniors and seniors
  • Annual College Planning Event with valuable information about trends in college admissions, writing an effective college essay, the growing importance of demonstrated interest, highly competitive admissions, conducting college visits and many more topics
  • Practice tests for students in grades nine through 11 with follow-up sessions to help students interpret results and determine next steps
  • Information sessions on topics such as financial aid, highly competitive college admissions, learning challenges and NCAA
  • Assistance and mentoring through the college application process of essays, applications and letters of recommendation
  • Coordinated local college trips with our college counselors
  • Career planning and exploration through Naviance assessments, career panels and career exploration day
  • Opportunity for all high school students to meet and talk with over 100 college reps during their fall visits to EC
  • Timeline communications and newsletters via Naviance and email so our families are aware of resources and important deadlines.
