COLLEGE CENTER MISSION:
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). We encourage students to take the lead in this process in order to maximize individual growth and ensure that the journey best prepares them for future success in college and beyond. However, students are not alone during this search. The College Counseling Office and the entire DSHA community join students and their families in creating a support network to lessen the anxiety and stress that come with choosing a college.
