CollegeVine and Henrico County Public Schools Partner to Redefine the College Admissions Process for Students and Counselors

Henrico students will have access to the free college networking platform, allowing them to connect directly with admissions officers, receive guidance on their path to college, and manage offers of admission and scholarship directly on the platform.

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Admissions–CollegeVine today announced a partnership with Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) to redefine college preparation for both students and counselors in the district.

The collaboration between CollegeVine and HCPS is centered around providing students and school counselors access to CollegeVine’s network of over 2 million students and 400+ colleges. The platform enables students to build out full professional profiles, research colleges, chat directly with admissions officers at schools they are interested in, estimate their chances of getting into specific schools, and manage real admission and financial aid offers from schools across the US. CollegeVine is a comprehensive platform designed to guide students through every aspect of their journey after high school.

Zack Perkins, CollegeVine’s chief executive officer, said of the partnership, “We’re thrilled to partner with Henrico County to bring free, equitable access to college opportunities for Virginia students. This partnership brings us closer to our goal of simplifying the complex world of college admissions and expanding access to higher education.”

In addition to helping their students access hundreds of college-related opportunities, HCPS educators will independently benefit from CollegeVine’s counselor-focused features and tools. The partnership will provide counselors with access to a recommendation letter assistant that helps them write highly-personalized recommendation letters using information from their students’ CollegeVine profiles.

“We are excited to provide our Henrico County students with the opportunity to get discovered by and connect directly to verified admissions officers from schools of their choice,” said Liz Parker, director of student support and wellness. “In addition, students will be able to receive and manage direct scholarship awards and offers of admission from two- and four-year colleges, including historically black colleges and universities, that are likely to be a great fit. This is another example of HCPS’s commitment to ensuring all students have the resources and support they need to make their postsecondary dreams and goals a reality.”
