Welcome to College Guidance!
As you start thinking about life after graduation from AFS, your College Guidance Team is here to assist you every step of the journey.
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’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.
Here’s how to reach us:
J.R. Neiswender, Director of College Guidance, Director of Studies
jneiswender@abingtonfriends. net, 215-576-3066
Kristen Miller, Associate Director of College Guidance, Director of Studies
Joanna Upmeyer, College Guidance Counselor
Maryann Cummiskey, College Guidance Administrative Assistant, Registrar
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.
