College Counseling

For over 40 years, The New Community School has been effective in preparing our students for a successful college career. An effective college counseling program is an important part of that process. Our college counseling office works to identify academically rigorous schools that will be a good fit for our students’ unique learning styles, counsels students to help them make the right choice for them, and advocates on behalf of our students to help schools understand the gifts and challenges within each student.

The TNCS SAT and ACT school code is 471903.
