We Focus On What You & YOUR STUDENT Need Most
Forward College Counseling offers personal counseling services and tools to help your child attend the college or university that will set them up for continued success! And, perhaps college doesn’t serve your needs. Let’s explore gap years, service work, trade school programs, entrepreneurial mentorships, etc. It’s not just about college. Let’s help you have a joyful and rewarding young adulthood!
You and your student are important to us! We limit the number of students each counselor supports so that we can provide superior support. It’s not just about college - it’s about the skills you crave to help you reach your individual dreams.
We offer support in the following areas:
High School Success Strategies & Planning
Complex Summer Plans & Programs
Psychological Testing & Recommendations
Essay Editing & Ideation
Application Theming & Planning
Complete Application Assistance For All Applications (Up To 10)
Visitation & Communication
Final Decision Processes
