College Counseling at Shorecrest

Shorecrest's College Center is designed to be personal, individualized, and focused on the student. We are firmly committed to making the best match between students and the college or university that meets their needs, interests, and expectations. Researching colleges, completing applications, and navigating scholarship and financial aid sources can be exciting but also challenging. It is the goal of our College Counseling Team to provide information, assistance and support while capitalizing upon the collaboration between students, parents, teachers and counselors.

Shorecrest’s College Center is one of the most successful in the Tampa Bay area, with 100% of our seniors accepted to colleges of their choice. View our 2011-2015 College Acceptances for a list of higher education institutions where our students have received admission.

In addition to one-on-one guidance from our College Counseling Team, the College Center is also equipped with Naviance Family Connection, a software program designed specifically for research, organization, and communication during the college admissions process. The College Counseling Team individualizes each student’s Naviance account with a Shorecrest College Handbook, reminders of important deadlines, advice for student athletes, scholarship information and helpful links.

Throughout the year, parents sessions held by College Center staff give information on a variety of topics including: 
  • The Art of College: Pursuing the Arts at Shorecrest and Beyond
  • Playing the Field: What it takes to play NCAA Sports
  • Money Matters: Financial Aid & Affording College
  • Freshman Foundation: Building a Foundation for College
  • Sophomore Strategies: Beyond the Transcript
  • Junior Journey: Navigating the College Process Step by Step
