College Counseling

Student-Centered Search

Our College Counseling office provides an individualized and student-centered program to help students find the right college fit. With planning and preparation, the college process will be a positive experience. Students are encouraged to be independent and self-reliant in their college search. When selecting courses, students are advised to pursue studies that emphasize their particular talents and strengths. Supplementing a strong academic record with clubs and affiliations that reflect a student’s unique set of skills and talents will set the tone for success.

Personal Guidance

Our college counselors work one-on-one with students during their junior year to select colleges and universities that are best suited for their individual needs. With a clear understanding of what is important to colleges, our counselors guide students and teach them how to put their best foot forward with their applications. For a breakdown on suggested steps to take during each year of high school, visit the College Counseling Process page. Each year, Tampa Prep seniors are offered admission to some of the finest schools in the country and many receive substantial scholarship awards. View our 2011-2015 College Acceptances for a list of schools where our students have been admitted.
