Parents

Seeing your student succeed is our passion and what drives us.

We believe in getting to know your student face-to-face. We try to understand the whole-person, knowing that is how they will make their career decisions. We know that the College is only as successful as they are. In fact, we’ve made a promise.

Each year we run lots of assessments to make sure we are doing our best. These include:

  • Post-appointment assessment after every meeting
  • Post-workshop evaluations
  • A survey one year after graduation (see below for some highlights from 2013 graduates)
  • A survey of recent graduates Focus groups to meet directly with students
