Gann’s Sherri Geller Elected to National College Counseling Board
November 1, 2016
Gann’s focus on college readiness was further validated in September when the Presidents Council of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) elected Sherri Geller, Gann’s Co-Director of College Counseling, as its Coordinator-elect. Sherri will serve as the Coordinator and hold a seat on the NACAC Board of Directors in 2017-18. NACAC is the leading organization for college counselors and college admissions officers, representing 16,000 professionals from around the world dedicated to serving students as they make choices about pursuing post-secondary education.
The current president of the New England NACAC, Sherri will carry not only Gann’s banner but she’ll represent a Jewish day school “voice” in the national and international admissions community. She and Dave Tabachnik, her co-director of College Counseling at Gann, believe in an approach that ensures that students are not just candidates for the best colleges and universities, but that they focus on schools that are also the best “match” in terms of academic offerings, size, location, Jewish community, and other factors that are important to each student and family. The two full-time counselors actively support each member of the junior and senior class, ensuring that every Gann graduate gets the attention and assistance he or she needs in pursuing post-secondary goals.
Members of the Class of 2016 class enrolled in 41 different schools; in that class, schools attracting the greatest number of Gann students include Syracuse (5 students), Brown (4), BU, Brandeis, Princeton, Skidmore and GW (3 each) and Clark, Harvard, Muhlenberg, NYU, U Conn, U Penn, and Yale (2 each). Sherri and Dave also work with students who choose to pursue a gap year experience before attending college; programs involving urban volunteer service, international travel, and yeshiva study provide a critical space for skill development and a deepening of self-understanding..
Regardless of a student’s destination, Sherri and Dave’s work is laser focused on helping students prepare for the journey and arrive ready to excel. Please click here
