At Collegiate, our passion is helping students build their story, not just tell it. Our comprehensive, JK-12 approach enables us to provide age-appropriate information and guidance for all members of our community, not just juniors and seniors. We believe that early engagement not only supports student growth and development but also helps to reduce anxiety and stress in a process that is often filled with it.


When the time comes to narrow our focus on the college search, selection, and application process, the student finds herself right where she has always been in our program--at the center. We empower our students with rich resources, excellent advice, and unparalleled insight into the world of admissions so that they become fully engaged self-advocates. This approach creates real ownership and ultimately results in a decision made by the student and her team, not by her team for the student.

Match Driven

We believe that the stronger the match between person and place, the greater the potential for continued growth, development, and success. Ultimately, we believe in our students' futures and strive to help each student find the college that is the right fit. Our team also studies enrollment patterns and data and maintains close relationships with admissions personnel in an effort to demystify the admissions process and give our students and families realistic expectations for outcomes.
