College Counseling

At DVFS, the College Counseling Department is always working to provide students and families with the necessary tools to make informed decisions about their future through comprehensive, individualized guidance.

Hallie Ciarlone, Director of College Counseling, meets with students and families to evaluate LD accommodations and create a personalized plan, helping students find their individual voices and use them to recognize their "best fit" post-secondary options. By doing so, students will be empowered to investigate their options by identifying schools that meet their academic, social, career, co-curricular, and personal aspirations.

From the start, the College Counselor is the DVFS student's advocate throughout their college search, providing guidance on college selection, serving as a link to college admissions offices, and supporting each application with a letter of recommendation. The counselor is also here to help minimize the family's anxiety and confusion during this process, while assisting students with securing academic accommodations as well as completing the application forms and essays. To provide further support, DVFS students receive accounts to sign onto the SCOIR page. This online portal helps keep track of important dates, college visits, and college search criteria.

In junior and senior years, students receive extensive support in all aspects of the college application process with emphasis on application completion, interviewing, essay-writing, academic support self-advocacy, evaluating potential schools, and securing financial aid. Students begin meeting regularly with the College Counselor during the fall and winter of their junior year. At that point, the entire family will also meet with the College Counselor to plan for the upcoming year. DVFS also hosts a significant number of colleges and universities every fall and spring for in-school information sessions. Several community meetings and college counseling events are held throughout the year for various grade levels.

The college search process can be complex but also extremely rewarding. Taking advantage of the resources offered by the DVFS College Counseling Department can help students gain direction and focus for success.
