Hello and welcome! College Advisers are members of the Georgia College Advising Corps, and they are here to serve Midtown High School, working to increase the number of post-secondary opportunities available to underserved students as well as increase the amount of first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students who attend and complete higher education. See how you can get support in developing your student's post-secondary plans!
