Working with Student-Athletes

It all begins in ninth grade

  • High school student-athletes share many of the concerns of other college-bound students. They also have distinctive concerns that require additional counselor advice and support, whether they hope to win college admission and scholarships with their athletic ability or just want to play on a college team.

What's special about counseling student-athletes?

  • The involvement and influence of coaches (high school and college) in the student's college search and application process
  • Application timeline differences
  • Academic preparation requirements that include national athletic association requirements in addition to high school graduation requirements
