The Adelson Advantage: College Prep
No matter where your child is on their K-12 educational journey, we know college is on your mind. College preparedness only grows more urgent a priority the closer your student gets to graduation. We are committed to preparing your child for collegiate success.
From college counseling and deep, hands-on academic engagement, to our spirit of RUACH and the connectedness of our community, we provide the ideal environment to support your child’s advancement to higher education.
Every high school student will receive individualized attention from our college counselor. Students and families can take advantage of counseling to discuss standardized testing, the college application process including access to scholarships, and strategies to stand out as an applicant.
Smaller Class Sizes
Your student will be known in a connected community like ours. Classes are smaller. Teachers can more easily recognize strengths and areas to strengthen, and work closely with you and our college counselor to use that information to help your child achieve her or his collegiate goals.
College prep is a team effort. Instructors will contribute to your child’s college application packet with input about her or his interests, enrichment experiences and accolades. Our English department chair and instructors review seniors’ college applications, with particular attention given to the essays.

Learn More About Our PSAT/SAT Program
Adelson's PSAT/SAT prep program allows our Juniors the opportunity to work with PrepExpert, founded by Shaan Patel and funded by Mark Cuban on the TV show Shark Tank. Upon implementing this program, our average scores increased approximately 200 points with a class average of 1360.
Our students engage in a self-directed project for the ACE Program (Adelson Culminating Experience) during their junior and senior years. Experience taking on a project of this scale will demonstrate to colleges that your child is ready to take on the challenges, responsibilities, and independence collegiate work entails.
