What We Do

Common Sense College Counseling (CSCC) is devoted to helping students plan and prepare for college admissions. We believe that there are great college options for every student, and we can help you get there--from high school academic and extracurricular program strategies, to identifying colleges, to hitting the “send” button on the application, to making the final college choice. Everyone needs something a bit different, so we tailor services to your needs. Let us know how we can help!
