Our Services


Consultations are arranged by appointment only and include the following:

  • An in-depth and sensitive interview with the student and his/her family. This meeting clarifies the needs and priorities of the client and directs the path best taken at the time.
  • Evaluation of all past records including transcripts, achievement and aptitude testing, and pertinent information regarding the students personal growth.
  • Counseling interview with the student to help identify those options best suited to his/her individual requirements.
  • When necessary, testing will be advised for purposes of psychological and intellectual assessment. Referrals will be made to tutors, remedial reading specialists, psychologists, psychiatrists, and other professionals.
  • After the selection of appropriate schools, the staff will assist the student through the application process.
  • Full service includes personal communication by ACS counselors with private secondary schools or college admissions offices, when appropriate.
  • ACS provides a continuing support system for students either through additional contact with the school, as with private schools and alternative schools, or through helping the student identify the appropriate school from his/her list of college acceptances.
