At Casady we work collaboratively through college counseling and readiness workshops to ensure that each student is prepared to experience success in the Upper Division, as well as in college and in life.
The Upper Division staff and College Counselors are focused on college preparation and college matching. From course selections to advisors, from extracurricular activities to college lists – we intentionally pursue each student’s growth and validation at Casady and beyond.
Our college counseling team provides a premier college readiness program that includes both a parent and student track. For parents, we offer college nights that start in the ninth grade, along with special guest speakers, breakout sessions, one-on-one meetings and financial aid workshops. For students, we provide a college seminar that includes essay writing, test prep, resume building, one-on-one college application consulting and a mock admission capstone project.
