Students in Augusta, Georgia need individualized College Counseling, which is why Augusta Prep has a low counselor-to-student ratio.  We get to know your student and guide them through the college search process.

Our mission is to help students and their parents navigate the college decision-making process and researching viable educational choices. The goal? Finding the best match between a student's talents/interests and those colleges and programs offering appropriate intellectual and personal challenges.

Selecting a college that suits one's academic, professional, and personal needs is an important decision. It requires conscientious research, critical thought, and considerable planning, involving both students and parents. There is no "best" college for any individual; there are many options, as shown by the 150+ colleges that offered acceptance to our 2015 graduates!
The College Counseling Office at Augusta Prep gives personal attention to each student navigating this exciting process. It’s one of the hallmarks of an excellent Augusta, Ga. private school – to provide that personal attention that’s required to make the most informed decision possible.
  • Encourage students and their families to consider a variety of college and post-secondary options in search of the best fit.
  • Consistently distribute useful information about all aspects of the college search and selection process.
  • Use technology effectively to enhance and streamline as many aspects of the process as possible.
  • Work to diminish the impact of misinformation from well-meaning but non-expert sources (family, friends, colleagues, websites) by providing easy access to resources and timely answers to questions from trustworthy sources.
  • Provide support to students and parents to reduce the stress and anxiety that inevitably come with this important decision-making process.
  • Support families throughout the processes of searching and applying for financial aid from federal, state, and private sources.
  • Coordinate and administer Prep’s PLAN, PSAT, Advanced Placement and special needs college testing programs.
  • Provide information on appropriate test preparation.
  • Provide a warm and welcoming atmosphere for students, parents, as well as guests from colleges, universities, important programs and other schools throughout the year.

We are partners with the school’s faculty, and care deeply about students finding balance in their experiences both during the college search and beyond their years at Prep. We strive for excellence and consistency in all our work while holding students to high standards in all of our interactions. It is our hope that all students will emerge with a clear sense of purpose, empowered to manage the challenges of their college years with confidence in their abilities and the wherewithal to make good decisions independently.

We maintain close contact with college admissions offices around the country. By working with admissions offices, maintaining membership and service in professional organizations, attending national and regional conferences, and touring college campuses, we have developed both a working knowledge of colleges and an understanding of the specific issues involved in the admissions processes of different institutions.

Please know that we are always available in the College Counseling Office to assist you and answer your questions. We encourage you to call, stop by, or email us any time at
