利记's college counseling mission is to provide a logical sequence of application procedures that culminate with a choice of acceptances that fit well with the student's objectives. The foundation of our school's approach to college counseling is knowing each student well, understanding the higher education environment in which they will excel, and finding the school at which they can pursue their goals with the best chances of success.
