College Advising

Indian Springs School’s College Advising program strives to advance the mission of the school by engaging students in a highly individualized college search.
The program inspires students to seek to understand themselves, to approach their search with curiosity and an open mind, and to cultivate the courage to make decisions about college that reflect their true needs, desires, and values.

From residential liberal arts colleges to metropolitan research universities and conservatories to institutes of technology, our students’ collegiate choices mirror their myriad talents, interests, and personalities.

As Director of College Advising, I get to know my students in order to build the trust necessary to challenge and support them as they embark on their college search and application journeys. Through a series of individual and group meetings in 11th and 12th grades, I help students identify colleges of interest, think about how and what to research, and compose applications that authentically convey their individual strengths. 

Please feel free to contact me anytime you have questions or concerns relevant to college advising.
