College Counseling

At CSG, we want all of our students to find the right fit for college.

With a comprehensive college counseling program, we have the resources to ensure that every student receives guidance specific to her talents, interests, and needs.

At Columbus School for Girls, we educate, counsel, and act as advocates for our students during the college search and selection process. The strength of our program is in the personal and individual attention each family receives as students seek to find a perfect fit. Beginning in the ninth grade, we host parent and student programs, administer standardized tests, teach college counseling classes, and meet individually with students and their families. Nationally, we represent Columbus School for Girls during our travel to colleges, universities, and conferences.
