Our College Department faculty work hard to ensure that all of our students receive excellent college advisement starting in 9th grade. Our College Counselor provides individual counseling,  college trips, workshops and push-in support to classrooms so that students are able to access the college of their choice.

Last year, Mariel Arias ’15 (pictured above with our college counselor, Shohreh Tolou), was the first student from our school to receive a prestigious,  full 4-year scholarship to attend Dickinson College in Pennsylvania funded by the Posse Foundation.
