College Advisory

At Coast Redwood High School we strive to provide a comprehensive, student-centered, college advisory program. Our small class sizes make it possible to truly understand the needs and desires of each student we work with. This individualized approach allows us to work with students and their families to find the “best college fit.” We understand that when it comes to education, “success” looks different for each person. We strive to find the best academic, social, environmental and financial “fit” for each student. This work entails helping students with self-exploration, college selection, and visits, standardized testing, essay writing, applying for financial aid, and choosing a college to attend.


Our formal College Counseling program begins the first semester of 11th grade. We begin meeting monthly with students. We introduce them to the various applications, help them research colleges and create their “right fit” college list, help them prepare for college visits and interviews, discuss testing options and begin to help them develop ideas and skills for their college essays. 


Senior year we continue to meet with our students monthly, for the first semester. We help them navigate all aspects of the college application process; applications, essays, recommendations, managing transcripts, testing, and give them resources to help with the financial aid process.
