College Counseling


We recognize that navigating the path to college can be challenging. We are here to help with every step of the process. After all, our students' success is our future!

Monica Ladell and Emily Hendricks work with school counselors, parents and students throughout their four year experience at Edgewood. Starting freshman year, students are guided through college and career exploration activities, including interest inventories, job shadow and field trip opportunities and meetings with college admissions representatives. Starting junior year, students are supported through individual planning for post-secondary options—reflecting on individual goals and strengths, identifying schools that are a "good fit" and working through the entire college application process.
