High School Counselors

We value our relationship with guidance counselors throughout Pennsylvania, the Mid-Atlantic region, and the country. You provide an important educational service to prospective students and their families. We hope to work hand-in-hand with you to help you counsel students on whether Alvernia might be their ideal university, and - for those who discover Alvernia is the right choice - to ease the transition of moving from your school to our campus.

We recognize a challenging economic climate may impact many of the talented students interested in Alvernia University, and understand its effect on prospective students families. We also realize the cost of education can cause some families to reprioritize their college selection criteria. Based on conversations with prospective families and other Admissions Offices in the region, we know students must consider all these facets and therefore may take longer to make final decisions about their college plans. As you talk to your students about their post-high school plans, know that we understand and want to work with students and their families to make attending Alvernia an achievable goal.

Know also that personal attention is the hallmark of an Alvernia education. You'll find we can offer support to students who may encounter some difficulty reaching their academic goals. We can also invite students who have excelled in high school to apply to our challenging honors program. We pride ourselves on assisting all students in reaching their full potential. It's an important part of our heritage.

Please call our admission counselors at any time - they are ready to work with you.
