Percent of Families Would Recommend Us


I wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend Polaris College Counseling to any student who finds themselves in the muddy waters of the college application process. I believe that even the most accomplished students can greatly benefit from the mentorship of an experienced, kind, intelligent, and extremely knowledgeable college counselor like Alice.

Student R. L.

“I must say that we are incredibly satisfied with Alice in her handling of our daughter and her applications. She is highly efficient and organized. A superb communicator, she kept us informed about every stage of the progress while we had our daughter work independently with her. We have recommended her to all our friends who need help in college admissions. ”
