College Counseling office

Preparing for college - and life 

For decades, Norfolk Collegiate has prepared students for success and leadership in college and beyond. Our graduates possess a strong educational foundation, passion for learning, personal awareness, confidence and motivation to participate in their communities. As our students prepare to move on to college, these qualities are recognized through the millions of dollars in merit-based awards and scholarships that many are offered each year. 

In ninth grade, we introduce our students to the college admissions process under the guidance of our College Counseling Director Michael Kaplan. For the next three years, we provide them insights from alumni and college admissions officers, as well as training in college applications, visits, tests and interviews. The goal is to match each student with the right-fit college of his or her choice.
