College and Post-Secondary Office

We are very proud of the work that we have done to create a college and post-secondary counseling program that best meets the needs of all of our individual students. Our amazing Counselors, Kate Beck and Samantha Grande, work diligently with each of our students and their families to ensure that their post high school goals are met.



The iSchool was founded on the beliefs of individualization and the importance of choice and responsibility, and we mirror these core beliefs in our college and post-secondary counseling process. We offer a personalized and comprehensive post-secondary counseling program that focuses on helping every student apply to a range of “best fit” colleges and/or specialized programs that match their individual needs and goals.

To meet these individual needs, our counselors guide, counsel, question, recommend, refer, suggest and inform. This support comes through student group workshops, monthly newsletters and other communications, including, college tours, structured weekly advisory lessons, and individual and family meetings.

While many supports are given, we expect students to be responsible for and take control of their application process-- to be “in the driver’s seat”. Students are responsible for researching colleges, studying for entrance exams, writing reflective essays, and completing and submitting applications on time. The college counselors will not do these things for the students, nor should their parents, although we'll be there with you every step of the way!

Ultimately, students who end up most successful are those who understand their abilities and needs best, feel confident in their abilities and choices, and who are thus able to find their best fit. These students have researched their schools and programs, asked tough questions, and found good matches: places where they can thrive both socially and academically while being challenged and pushed to be their best self.
iSchool students have developed the fortitude and self-awareness to make such matches.
