Empowerly Counselors


Near Peer Counselor

A near peer counselor is an older student or recent graduate who has successfully navigated the college admissions process. Near peer counselors offer unprecedented access to current admissions experiences. We recognize that every student is unique, and near peer counselors are a good fit for students who respond best to relationships that resemble their peers.


Experienced College Counselor

An experienced college counselor is a professional who has had more than 10 years of experience in advising high school or college students. Experienced college counselors are able to effectively guide students through universal experiences, such as taking the SAT or ACT and planning their high school or college curriculum.


Former Admissions Officer

A former admissions officer has held prestigious roles in college admissions offices for between 3 and 10 years. They offer guidance and first-hand advice from the perspective of an admissions officer. Additionally, former admissions officers provide supplementary mock admissions services in which they review college applications and provide expert feedback.
