College Counseling

The GAC College Counseling program aims to help each student find the right college match. Our college counselors guide our students and their families one-on-one through every step of the college admission process.

We honor the differences of each student and strive to aid them in identifying their strengths, values, and interests when considering the best school fit. We coach our students on how to best prepare and present themselves.

Our support is proactive and individualized, empowering students to take ownership of the collegiate transition process.
