The Danville High School Counseling Department offers the service of college counseling as a resource to investigate appropriate college options with students and their families. It is our ambition to remain realistic and supportive of the students' interests and goals for post-high school planning. We will provide information at grade-appropriate intervals regarding standardized testing, college applications and the admission procedures, NCAA eligibility and financial aid information.

To find a school's website, simply Google the name of the college. Students are encouraged to become acquainted with their counselors as soon as possible. Appointments can be made by contacting one of the Counselors.
