The Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program

Counseling

SEEK counselors provide SEEK students with support and guidance to help them succeed in college. All SEEK students are assigned a counselor to assist them with monitoring their educational progress and connecting them to academic and other supportive services.

SEEK counselors help students adjust to the new challenges, demands and expectations of college. With each counseling interaction, students will learn how to navigate the ins and outs of college as well as discuss and design an educational plan that leads them toward graduation.
