First Choice                   College Counseling


Mission Statement

Our mission is to help students of all levels gain admission to a four-year college where they can succeed and thrive. Our goal is to help them flourish as students, citizens, and adults. We will always give honest advice that is in the best interest of the student and never succumb to the pressure to match a student to a college where they are not an appropriate fit. As our motto says, the first step is taking the stress out of college success.


It is our sincere belief that every student is unique, whether it be in their talents, interests, or aspirations. We know that students operate under a tremendous amount of pressure, both internal and external. We believe that to be happy, a student must exercise an ever-growing degree of independence, for that is their only chance to hear and embrace their inner voice. College selection is an important step, but only the first step in that process. We match students with their "Goldilocks" college - not too hot or too cold, not too hard or too easy. We look forward to working with students of all levels to find the best fit for them.
