College Counseling

UPrep's College Counseling program is tremendous from start to finish. They get to know the students really well and break down the process into very manageable steps for both parents and students. The team has developed a five-star reputation with college admissions reps and has a knack for matching kids with colleges that fit them well." –UPrep parent

Helping students reach the next stage of their development – adulthood – is at the core of every interaction in UPrep’s College Counseling Office.

Our College Counseling Office expertly demystifies the college process for our students and their families while simultaneously ensuring that they fare extremely well in their search and selection process.

College information nights for juniors and seniors, more than 200 visits from college admissions officers from around the country and the world, and expert administration of standardized tests are just some of the many services the office provides.

Our diverse student body finds collegiate homes at a robust range of institutions, from Stanford to Syracuse, and from the University of Chicago to the University of Washington.

Although we celebrate our students’ college outcomes, what we rejoice in the most is the lives of distinction our Pumas lead post-college. In employment ranging from medicine to music and from education to global affairs, our alumni embrace lifelong learning and are forces for good and excellence in their chosen professions.
