Meet the Staff

Hackley’s three college counselors, who represent more than 50 years of college admissions and counseling experience, each advise approximately 30-35 students per class, an enviable student-to-counselor ratio. We teach all juniors in our required Introduction to College course and get to know them individually through multiple meetings in both junior and senior years. We visit college campuses regularly, and we connect with admissions officers at Hackley, at professional conferences, and during the admissions evaluation process.
