The Director of College & Career Counseling

As the director of college & career counseling, Ms. Amanda Leszczuk works with all high school students to guide them through the college identification and application process and determine the best college career path for each individual student.

College preparation starts early in the Mariemont City School District. To continue the process of college preparation, Ms. Leszczuk conducts college-planning programs for both freshmen and sophomores, where she introduces Naviance and other college preparation tools. She also prepares and distributes a current post-secondary planning college and career guide to all high school students.

Beginning in the first quarter of junior year, Ms. Leszczuk meets with small groups of students to begin a more intensive approach to the college preparation process. Later in the school year, she meets with junior-year students and their parents on an individual basis for a college-planning meeting.

The summer before senior year, Ms. Leszczuk hosts a College Application Workshop for all seniors, where she teaches students how to present themselves in their applications and works with them individually on resume and college essay revisions. By Thanksgiving break, she meets with all seniors regarding their post-secondary plans and maintains ongoing conversations with them regarding their academic achievement throughout the rest of the school year. Her goal is to work with each student to create a solid college or career path.

As the director of college & career counseling, Ms. Leszczuk completes an analysis of each junior and senior’s transcript to ensure that each individual student is earning the correct credits for graduation as well as making the best course choices for college; she works with at-risk students to help them identify the tools and courses they need to graduate; and she assists students with alternatives to college regarding post-secondary planning and choices.

Ms. Leszczuk strives to give as much one-on-one assistance to students as possible and to build relationships with all students and parents to inform and enhance the college decision-making process.
