The Aspen High School College Counseling Program is dedicated to helping students consider options and achieve admission to the college of their choice. AEF fully funds a full-time college counselor and full-time assistant. Our Aspen High School seniors exemplify our schools at work.  Not so long ago, they were learning science from Mr. G, preparing for their 8th grade Outdoor Ed solos, and wide-eyed on the first day of high school.  Today, almost every one of them has taken full advantage of our college counseling department.

“The goal of the Post-Secondary Counseling office is to help develop authentic, resilient, and informed decision-makers. By helping students identify their unique qualities and strengths, we can assist them in finding the best path to reach their goals for life after high school.”
Charlie Laube, Aspen High School College Counselor

Every single AHS student has access to a college counselor – who offers guidance on test taking, financial aid, essay writing and the complicated application process.


Most public high schools do not have a full-time college counselor and students are left to navigate the process on their own.


97% of our seniors are accepted to college. Proof that college counseling works. What is this worth to you?

Helping students reach their highest potential


Every October over 225 colleges and universities gather in Aspen to meet Colorado Western Slope students from more than 80 diverse high schools.
