Hillel has a proactive College Guidance Program that begins in Grade 9 and spirals with intensity through Grade 12. Hillel understands that students and families approach the college application process with diverse needs and styles and, thus, highly values and practices a student-centered philosophy in this crucial transition. Counselors provide current information regarding the college admissions process and encourage open communication and an open door policy with students and parents.
College counselors are strong student advocates, both within Hillel and through relationships with colleges. They are readily seeking 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.
Hillel is strongly committed to helping students find the school that best matches their needs, interests and abilities. Students and parents are encouraged to schedule meetings with the college counselors in the Upper School office or by calling 305-931-2831 ext.150.
