Scheck Hillel’s College Counseling Office provides a comprehensive and individualized college counseling process for students and families, beginning in Grade 8 and progressing through Grade 12. Extending from Scheck Hillel’s educational philosophy to maximize opportunity for each individual student, the mission of the college counseling program is to help students find the university, college or program that best matches their own needs, interests and abilities.
Understanding that students and families approach the college application process with varying needs and styles, counselors use a student-centered philosophy in this crucial transition. College counselors provide up-to-date information regarding the college admissions process and encourage open communication through an open-door policy.
College counselors are advocates for students both at Scheck Hillel and through relationships with colleges. They seek opportunities to enhance their professional development and utilize the benefits of NACAC (National Association of College Admissions Counseling), SACAC (Southern Association of College Admissions Counseling), various university-sponsored college programs, the College Board, ACT, and other local, state, and national organizations.
