College Preparation

At EBIA, we believe that all students have the right to go to college. It is our job to provide them with the necessary supports and strategies to get them there.

Students have better outcomes when we address the whole student. Advisors and our counseling team are here to provide knowledge from the college admission field, academic strategies, family meetings, and additional encouragement. From year-round visits from college admission experts, free SAT preparatory courses, to college trips for every grade level, EBIA families have high aims for college and career readiness.
