Member Benefits

ACCIS is the only professional organization that focuses on the unique needs of independent school college counselors. Our own members are our best ambassadors as well as our best educators. Through our year-round professional development activities, ACCIS members learn from each other and experts in the field in order to continue to serve our students and our school communities.

The ACCIS eLists provide a broad range of professional input for your queries. Is your school re-evaluating its grading or curricular policies? Wonder what programs other schools offer to younger students? The eLists let you quickly and easily gather information from other ACCIS members at independent schools across the country.

ACCIS newsletters provide timely information about topics in our field, news about ACCIS activities and events, and resources to help your professional development. Research and data links provide resources to help you in your day-to-day job and in long-term planning.

ACCIS members strengthen their professional skill sets and build relationships with colleges through our professional development programs, ranging from the annual Summer Institute and Colloquia to our ACCIS counselor tours to our annual membership meeting. Our Upcoming Programs page lists ACCIS offerings.

Whether in person, online, or through virtual meetings, the opportunity to share ideas and advice with colleagues is what makes ACCIS membership essential to each independent school college counselor.

We hope you will consider joining ACCIS, as a college counselor, and on behalf of your independent school's counseling program.
