College Advising at MBHS
At Mountain Brook High School, we work with students and their families through the college application and selection process. Through one-on-one meetings, classroom guidance, and special events like the College Admission Workshop we strive to help families understand the college admission process and lessen the stress associated with selecting a college. Our goal is that each student builds a strong profile, both inside and outside the classroom, enabling the student to make a positive college match.
Students and parents are encouraged to reach out to the college advising office with any questions about the application process.
