College Counseling

Highly personalized guidance through the college admission process is part of the Denver JDS package.

Our experienced college counselor, Cynthia (Ceci) Lowinger, LCSW, works closely with students and their families to arrive at a good match between the college and the student. Ceci's comprehensive and individualized counseling services have enabled hundreds of Denver JDS students to gain acceptance into and thrive at the colleges of their choice. From testing to college searches to applications and decisions, Ceci helps students -- and their parents -- navigate the road after high school. The Denver JDS College Counseling Office is a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling and the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling.
