What Students and Parents Say about UHS College Counseling 

The college counseling program at University High School is worth every dime of tuition. - Tom, Parent

Dr. Fadely oversees a well-thought-out and well-scheduled college counseling program. I think I applied to 13 colleges; it was so many. Dr. Fadely helped me narrow down what I wanted to do, and at the last second, I decided to do early decision to Vanderbilt University -- and I got in. Dr. Fadely really helped me. I think we had to meet in a Starbucks over winter break, but he was there, we did it, and I got in. - Matt ('10)
