Overview

Wendy Reicher, the Acalanes College and Career Counselor, is there to help guide students in their transition from High School.

High impact workshops on college application, essay writing, financial aid, use of Naviance (the online college application tool) along with Career Day, and general advice help students navigate an often complex process.
