- Support HPA
Welcome to HPA's Virtual College Counseling Center, staffed by Andrew Kelsey and Hui-Chun O'Leary. Our College Counseling Homepage is designed to help HPA students and their families plan for and apply to college.
On our homepage you can learn about the College Counseling program at HPA, review our event calender, utilize the incredible resources of Family Connection and target the internet for detailed college and financial aid information.
We encourage you to start by looking at any recent updates and calendar notices and then logging in to Family Connection. Family Connection has a tremendous college search engine and provides statistical analysis of HPA's admissions data for the last six years. HPA students use Family Connection for free test prep, learning and career inventories, and academic planning. All of of our seniors use Family Connection to submit their college applications electronically. We now submit all HPA college application materials (transcripts, teacher recommendations, and school reports) through Family Connection. As a result, colleges are able to receive and process HPA materials in minutes rather than days and weeks. This online service saves critical time in the college application process. We also keep our most current scholarship information on Family Connection. To learn more about using Family Connection contact our office or read our Introductory Notes.
If you are a Junior, please make sure to complete all of the Senior Input Forms on this page by May 1 of your junior year. These forms are required by College Counseling to prepare the school report for your college applications.
We have also linked our website to the most valuable sites on the Internet for college admissions (see Menu Topics, Internet Resources or log on to Family Connection). Our families have found this recommended website service to be efficient and useful. We look forward to helping you with your college search.
