College Counseling for Parents

Woodlands’ College Counseling Program stresses personal and interactive communication among students, parents, and counselors. We encourage parents to participate in all individual conferences and to attend special college counseling programs for parents. Our counselors host informative workshops and morning coffees for parents throughout the year.
