College Counseling at Eastside Prep
Eastside Prep’s College Counseling Program is individualized but comprehensive in scope, and integrated on both literal and figurative levels. Eastside Prep’s College Counseling program is able to provide this kind of counseling for every senior in part because of who we are. There are eight members of the EPS College Counseling team, and each works with students in more than one capacity at school. College Counselors have taught, coached, traveled with, collaborated with, and advised all students before their first College Counseling meeting. While not a norm at other schools where students are not known by their College Counselors until their junior year, at EPS we believe that a history with our students provides the basis for a successful college search.
In the EPS model, each Upper School student is assigned a Process Coach and a separate Writing Coach, providing students with a highly individualized and cohesive experience. The College Counseling program is naturally integrated on many levels: counselors bring integrated experience from inside and outside EPS walls to their students and an extensive understanding of their students as well as the broader college admission landscape.
