Each high school guidance counselor serves an average of 350 students. In addition to college guidance, high school counselors also have to deal with a variety of other student issues. So, while your child's guidance counselor is a valuable resource who should always be consulted, he or she cannot reasonably be expected to provide your child with hours of personalized help and advice. Even in many private schools, students are not guaranteed the attention they need. Many students and parents require a more individual approach and professional expertise to help them navigate the competitive and increasingly complicated college admissions process.
