College Counseling

Welcome to La Jolla Country Day School (LJCDS) College Counseling. We meet our students where they are and take them where they want to go.

We understand that the college application and admission process is an individual process of self-discovery and an experience unique to each student. For this reason, it is our central goal to work closely with our students and parents to successfully guide them through each step in the process. From the first steps of the researching process to the final stages of decision making, our highly experienced, dedicated college counselors are committed to helping students find the right match so that they can continue to develop and thrive intellectually, socially and personally. Our athletic liaison in college counseling offers guidance for students who wish to play sports at the collegiate level.

We meet regularly with students and parents, host grade-level informational coffees, provide weekly communications, workshops and college fairs and bring upwards of 200 college admissions representatives to campus each fall. Most importantly, we get to know and work closely with every student and family. Each year, LJCDS seniors apply to and are accepted by a wide variety of schools, including highly selective colleges and universities, as well as specialized schools for those gifted in visual and performing arts. We welcome you to meet with us to discuss your child’s future.
