College Counseling Professional Learning

College admissions and financial aid policies have changed drastically during the COVID-19 pandemic. College Bridge has developed curriculum to train not only counselors, but also teachers and administrators, in the basics of college admission and financial aid. Through workshops, webinars, and our membership program, we will help you develop a school- or district-wide approach to college counseling, so that you can support students’ educational dreams for years to come.
