The college admission process involves a plan for the future, a range of options, and a good dose of uncertainty. It can be exciting, daunting, and empowering. Our College Counseling Office at DSHA works to assist students in identifying their strengths, aspirations, priorities, and goals through a process that involves self-reflection, critical thinking, and realism. This enables us to support students in charting a course to find their best possible post-secondary fit(s).
