Welcome to College Guidance!

Chances are good that you recognize our faces! We were first introduced as your Directors of Study and Registrar, helping you to navigate the course request and registration process in 9th and 10th grades. Now, as you start thinking about life beyond AFS, we’re here as your College Guidance Team.  
Our goal is to help you assess your academic, social, and financial needs, identify schools that fit you well, and help you through the application and decision-making process. We already know a little bit about you from the course-registration process, but we’re looking forward to getting to know you better.  

We’re here for students. We’re here for families. From the complicated questions to the simple assurance that there is someone who understands this process working on your behalf, we’re happy to guide you every step of the way.  

You’ve got “Friends” in the business. Let’s get started.

Kristen, Maryann and Ryan

Resources:

We realize that much of the work students and families will do in the application process will be outside of regular school-day hours. We have compiled a brief list of online resources that we frequently reference in our college meetings and evening programs so that you can easily access them when necessary.
