Ann Scheder-Bieschin founded Carina College Counseling in 2005 after a long career with youth in education and scouting. She has assisted numerous students and their families achieve their higher education goals, providing support to keep the process as low stress as possible.
I work with familes throughout the high school years, assisting in course selection, summer activities, and finding ways for students to pursue their passions.
I work with schools on College Night events for parents, speaking to the application process, the financial hurdles and essay work, as well as presenting to students and the challenges of first generation students.
Ann is a graduate of Stanford University with two Master's degrees from Columbia University in the City of New York. She has lived in Europe and Australia and currently resides in California and Montana. She works with clients throughout the US and the world.

As with any college experince, a student who is considering studying overseas needs to make certain that they are applying to a school that meets their needs. For a US student looking overseas, they should first realize that a UK university is very different than a US university, in applying, in curriculum, housing and in the social life around college.
Oxford and Cambridge are very competitive schools and if a student has the desire to attend, the benefits that a US student might gain, in addition to an excellent education, are the opportunity for international internships, gaining a more global perspective within the curriculum, and gaining a large dose of independence.
