COLLEGE COUNSELING

The College Counseling Program spans both the University Prep Academy and University Prep Science & Math districts. On a daily basis, students have direct access to a highly trained College Counselor and College Prep Coordinator dedicated to the post-secondary planning and Educational Development Planning (EDP) process.

Our Counselors are credentialed in school guidance and are active in state and national professional associations, including the Michigan Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC) and the American School Counselor Association (ASCA).
