College Counseling 

Welcome! Attending college is a continuation of many years of exploring new ideas, being challenged, working hard, making friends, growing up and getting to know oneself a little bit better. At The Urban School, we hope that the college admissions process, like the high school years at Urban, is one of self-discovery and an experience unique to each student.

The college counselors at Urban work closely with students and parents to guide you through the admissions process. We provide information and reminders, hold group meetings for parents and students, bring college admissions representatives to campus, and maintain relationships with colleges throughout the country. Most importantly, we get to know and work closely with each student and family.

In partnership with parents, we assist students in identifying, applying and making decisions about college. Our objective is to ensure that each individual has the confidence and independence to choose the college or university that best matches his/her goals, aspirations and talents. Each year, Urban seniors are accepted to a variety of schools, including highly selective colleges and universities, as well as specialized schools for those gifted in visual and performing arts.

We hope that the information on this website will be helpful in addressing some of your questions and concerns. And, please feel free to contact us in the College Counseling office. We look forward to working with you!

Introductions are always a bit awkward. I, however, have the luxury of a computer screen as a barrier so you’ll be meeting the best version of Maya Zeigler.

I am [obviously] new to Urban this more
