College Counseling

College counseling office visits colleges around U.S.

During summer break, members of the Ransom Everglades College Counseling Office visited 36 colleges and universities in 11 states, touring campuses, sitting in on admissions information sessions, and connecting with admissions officers. Visiting college and university campuses provided an opportunity for the office's 12 college counselors to receive updated information about the institutions that interest RE students. Many also experienced first-hand the campus visit process to better advise RE families as they plan college visits.

The coast-to-coast visits are part of the REimagination of the office under the Executive Director of College Counseling Jason Locke, who is in his second year at Ransom Everglades. Last winter, RE Head of School Rachel Rodriguez announced the hiring of seven new counselors and an essay-writing specialist. The expanded team has worked since to enhance programming and provide more personalized guidance to RE students and families.
