College Guidance

Welcome to College Guidance

With three college guidance counselors -- one for every 23 students -- our college guidance program is uniquely individualized to meet the needs of every student.

Our college guidance counselors know our students and carefully guide them and their families through the college application process. It is a personalized, one-on-one relationship that results in students not only getting into the college of their choice, but also the right college for them.

What Our Graduates Say

"Liggett taught me that I was a leader and taught me to embrace that part of my identity. It taught me that my life should not be 100 percent academic. If Liggett hadn't taught me that, I think I would've spent my freshman year in my dorm room studying. Instead I immediately joined a choir and two clubs. I am now part of the specialty staff in the dorms and am on the executive board of my choir. Without Liggett, it would have taken me a long time to realize my potential as a leader." 

"At The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, I invited a professor for lunch because she is a guru in the non-profit world and I wanted to learn more about her work. Because of the Liggett culture, I had the confidence to invite her to lunch and have an academic conversation. It is what I did for the past four years at Liggett."
