College and Academic Advising

Preparation for College and Beyond 

American Heritage students receive expert advice and guidance through each step of the college search, planning and application process from 7th through 12th grade. Our college and academic advising team is dedicated to helping each student find their individual college fit, understand and simplify the process, and submit applications through a variety of one-on-one meetings, workshops, financial aid presentations, and classroom visits.
