Our approach is individualized and personal. We take time to get to know each student and their priorities, find the right fit, open doors, and ensure students take the appropriate steps to achieve their goals.

Dawson's student to college counselor ratio is 30:1. At surrounding schools, the ratio is a whopping 300:1, and often students are working with an 'everything counselor'. The access to personalized college counseling at Dawson is unmatched, and why 100% of our graduates are accepted to college.

Every year more than 100 colleges and universities visit Dawson. And because of our small class sizes, students get the opportunity to spend one-on-one time with the people making admission decisions. It's an incredible opportunity that other schools can't provide.

Beyond the personalized attention, Dawson's college counseling program provides families with educational programs beginning in middle school. When students begin their freshman year, families are provided a grade-by-grade roadmap for managing the college journey. Our program includes required college counseling classes in junior and senior year.
