College Counseling & Support Services

Students meet with college counselors starting second semester of their junior year. Leading up to that point, students work with the academic dean to ensure their coursework meets their individual needs.

Our college counseling program offers a variety of opportunities for you and your child to learn about the college admission process and tackle each step along the way to successful acceptance:

Weekly college counseling classes

Second-semester juniors and seniors attend a weekly class to cover key college admission topics including evaluation programs; staying calm and organized during the process; deciding whether to apply for early action/early decision; writing college essays; and how to have successful college visits and interviews.

Individual appointments

Starting in the second semester of junior year, each student's college counselor is available to meet with your family to discuss your teen’s academic performance, interests and career goals. As students move further along the process, counselors give feedback on applications and help with the final decision.

Parent college nights

At these regular events, you’ll learn about the college admission process and discuss your teen’s progress with individual college counselors.

College visits to Harker

Our college counselors work hard to develop strong relationships with college admissions teams across the country. Each year, we welcome nearly 75 college admission representatives to our campus to meet with students.
