College Counseling

AUP provides our students with individualized support in navigating a competitive college admissions process. Our experienced College Counselor meets frequently with students regarding a number of key areas, including AUP course selection, monitoring daily academic progress, standardized test taking strategies and practice testing, co-curricular involvement, and summer enrichment options intended to provide students with a complete and competitive college application.

Seniors receive intensive counseling and support needed to develop a comprehensive school list, complete error free applications, and write college essays that stand-out from the crowd to set them up to gain admission to the best possible universities and colleges.
