Independent College Preparatory

Grades 6 -12

College Counseling at Prep

Sandia Prep’s college counseling program is individualized and student-centered.

Typically, 100% of Sandia Prep graduates enroll in a four-year college or university, and our counselors work diligently one-on-one and in group settings to help students and their families understand the complex process of planning for and applying to college.

While each student is assigned a primary college counselor in December of junior year, information regarding the college admissions process is offered at each grade level – 9th through 12th grade. Helping freshmen understand the importance of their early academic work and selecting the appropriate courses; providing opportunities for sophomores to explore their aptitudes and abilities as they relate to career options and future college choices; and holding on-going individual meetings with juniors and seniors are a few of the many components of our college counseling program.

Additionally, the college counseling office provides assistance with financial aid and information on scholarships. Last year our students accepted more than $250,000 of roughly $1 million in merit scholarships awarded.
