Here's what cooperating high school principals and counselors are saying about the National College Advising Corps's Keystone Region:
The college/career planning is such a crucial aspect and could be a full-time job in itself. However, as a school counselor, there are many more job responsibilities that must be dealt with on a daily basis and time in this matter, college planning, can be limited. Having an Adviser helps tremendously and I do not feel as overwhelmed as previous years.
This position (NCAC Adviser) allows extra support to ensure all students can focus on career research, college searches, portfolios, and real world applications. It is without a doubt one of the best funded initiatives for high school reform and assistance.
This program has been an absolute life saver and has exceeded anything I could have imagined...Having an Adviser here has helped our students so much more than I could have done on my own with all the responsibilities we have as counselors.
