At MCDS, we work together to help students open doors to enriching experiences that will help them choose the next step in their education and future career paths. We focus on helping each student find several “best match” colleges.
A best-match college provides an environment that addresses the student’s intellectual, social, emotional, and cultural needs in such a way that the experience of being in college is life changing. While some students find such a match in a liberal arts college, others find it in a research university or a professional school. As part of the counseling task, I provide information about these different educational settings. But more importantly, I encourage students to reflect on their past learning, their interests, and their goals.
I look forward to working with each and every student in our community, helping them to plan activities and coursework in high school, providing information and personal knowledge of a variety of colleges and careers, and facilitating the college application and decision-making process. High school students are welcome to drop by the “CAC” (College Advising Center) during their free periods to talk with me and parents are always welcome to make an appointment for a college planning meeting.
Applying to college is an exciting process and I look forward to partnering with you!
