College Counseling

CIPLC’s Counseling Program aims to support students’ academic, social, and emotional development.  It is our belief that being a student by definition is challenging.  When appropriately challenged, students get to apply, develop, and refine their natural skills, intelligences, and talents.  So by the time CIPLC students reach high school, they are well prepared to embark on the path toward their college/career.  Of course parents are an integral part of this journey too.  CIPLC students and parents can be confident that they will receive the support they need as they face the challenges of school success and beyond.
