College Counseling

Woodlands’ College Counseling Program is committed to helping students make informed choices regarding their post-high school plans. Through individual meetings, college skills classes, information sessions, and workshops, we encourage students to discover the best about themselves and to research the opportunities available to them. Most important to this College Decision-Making Process is self-evaluation. When a student knows herself, she is able to make appropriate decisions about her future.

Our College Counseling Program stresses personal and interactive communication among students, parents, and counselors. Parents are encouraged to participate in all individual conferences and to attend special college counseling programs for parents.

Family Connection, a college counseling program, enables students to manage the college search process electronically. Students can track their test data and grade point averages, research colleges, examine their admissibility using Woodlands’ historical data, and access our college visit calendar.

Brendan Bond

Director of College Counseling
Master of Science, Northwestern University
Bachelor of Arts, Loyola University Chicago

Mr. Bond unintentionally started his career as a college counselor while in college when he began helping family and friends with their college searches. After a short career as a journalist, he turned to the world of college admissions, first at Northwestern University's undergraduate admissions office, and then as a college counselor with the Schuler Scholar Program. Along with the excitement of students receiving college acceptances, he finds the process of helping students discover their academic and extracurricular interests to be the most rewarding parts of the job. Mr. Bond operates with a belief that each student has the ability to succeed after they graduate, and it is his job to help them navigate the journey to get there. He has been with Woodlands since 2022.
