Institutional College Advising
A-List offers evaluation and training for college counseling staff in schools across the country.
- We deliver training in the form of best practices, policies, and tools.
- We provide a credential certifying the presence of materials and policies consonant with a first-rate counseling office.
- We deliver these improvements through interactions with master trainers. Our differentiator is our broad, diverse, and nationally recognized network and the experience of our staff of experts.
The college counseling offices in secondary schools are under increasing pressure to deliver students to schools that will assure their financial future (or at least give them the income needed to pay off their loans). They are struggling, however, with limited budgets, new technology, and changing policies that can burden office staff. Undermatching (when students apply to too few colleges) can be the result. Principals and headmasters—and their Boards—want effective counseling offices, ones where investments in program and staff are paying off. But where budgets are tight or staff is stressed, experienced admission and school counselors willing to work as consultants are the perfect solution. A-List is the premier professional development marketplace between schools that need help and experts who can deliver it. Knowledgeable in the field, experienced with students, comfortable as managers, these educational experts can fine-tune an office, initiate best practice, and offer on-going, strategic support for a fraction of the cost of adding full-time staff.

…There is a need for the type of program you have developed to be made available to every child regardless of income. This is why I have brought A-List into school districts I have been fortunate enough to lead: to train our teachers and provide the support necessary to improve our students’ scores.
A-List was engaging and substantive for our students. Each week our Dreamers were completely immersed in the class’s content…The sessions were poignant, enjoyable, and challenging and exactly what I had hoped for my Dreamers.
This was by far the most useful professional development session I’ve attended in my career.
