Academy College Prep is an non-profit that provides free college advising to high school students across the United States. We streamline and support any student who needs additional advising and guidance as they apply to college.

Our students choose between two pathways:

Four year College Pathway

Community College Pathway


With both comprehensive programs, students receive action items, resources and detailed instructions that support each activity. We help students choose a major, develop a college list, and build an application timeline to ensure that no college application deadlines are missed. We also review each college essay draft giving invaluable, concrete feedback throughout essay development.

Education is the Ultimate Economic Equalizer.
College Advising Can Make a Critical Difference.

The American School Counselor Association (ASCA) recommends that schools maintain a ratio of no more than 250 students per counselor, however the national average is 470 students per counselor. Along with many of these schools having poor student to counselor ratios, one in five students does not have access to a counselor at all. This has left around 8 million students without a proper support system.
