College Counseling & Academic Planning

College Counseling at Milken

At Milken, we see every student as unique and college counseling as more than a cookie-cutter process. We believe success is not defined by admission to a particular school, but instead by finding the right fit that will enable each Milken graduate to thrive. Our approach to college counseling is to build a partnership between counselors, students and their families, working together to provide guidance and direction that results in a placement where each individual student's gifts can shine.

Our curriculum in the Office of College Counseling & Academic Planning heightens and builds students’ self-awareness and self-expression. As they make the transition to college, we help them look at the college search as an opportunity for learning and development, encouraging them to explore their choices from practical, responsible and ethical perspectives. As they take ownership of the process, they become more attuned to their unique potential and the ways in which it can help them reach new levels of accomplishment in college and beyond.
