Milestone advisors do not replace high school guidance counselors; we work cooperatively to augment the services that in-school counselors provide. However, guidance counselors have significant responsibilities and are tasked with helping many students. According to an article published in the New York Times, the average counselor to student ratio in public high schools across the country is approximately 500:1.
Milestone advisors are able to get to know students and develop an individualized college plan that meets the needs of the student and the family as a whole. In addition, Milestone advisors visit college campuses, attend conferences and workshops, and participate in ongoing continuing education to provide the highest level of expertise and service, enabling us to help our students meet their unique academic and personal goals.
