Our teachers help students build non-cognitive qualities - from self-management to social intelligence to curiosity – by providing students with meaningful opportunities to develop and practice them. The goal of the Indian Creek College Counseling program is to not only help students and their families discover the college or university that is the best fit for the student’s academic, extracurricular, and social desires and needs, but also to ensure that our graduates will thrive in college.
Our College Counseling Office guides each student and family through the college search and application process. Beginning freshman year on Parent Night, when our College Counselors describe the college planning resources and types of assistance we provide, through our Junior Class College tour, and continuing through standardized testing, college fairs and visits, and application preparation and submission, Indian Creek School works with families to find the best college fit for each child.
College Counselors Maggie Margiotta Melson and Ruthie Shrum enjoy working closely with each student to provide helpful guidance and support. They review essays and resumes, and provide detailed recommendations to help college admission officers get to know each applicant.
