About Us

Corrie Sarol

College Counselor

I have worked with hundreds of students in my career, helping them shape the perfect college admission essay, talk through the pros and cons of different majors, and learn to interview with ease.  I love working with families through the entire college consideration and admissions process.  It is incredibly rewarding to help a family come together to support their student in making such a huge life decision.  

I have been an educator and college counselor for more than a decade. I began my career teaching AP and IB English at Signature School in Evansville, Indiana, and then moved to Evansville Day School, where I continued my work as an AP English teacher and, later, the school’s college counselor.

I believe in a common sense philosophy that building relationships is key in connecting with students and their families, and that kids learn better when they feel known and cared for.  The same values apply to college counseling, where I want students to feel celebrated for their strengths and encouraged in realistic but challenging goals.

Although I want my office to be a place of joy, I don’t take my job lightly. I follow current events in education and college admissions closely, and I stay on top of the trends and advocacy campaigns that affect my students. 

I hold a BA degree in Mass Communication from Purdue University, a BA degree in English from Iowa State University, and an MA in Liberal Studies from the University of Southern Indiana.  I am a member of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and Indiana Association of College Admission Counseling (INACAC), and I am an associate member of the Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA). I am also a licensed Indiana teacher.  


Corrie’s understanding of the application process is top-notch, but it was her energy and her rapport with my son that really stood out. Because she cares about the outcome and sweats the details right alongside her clients, my son came out of every meeting with Corrie feeling energized and confident. He was accepted by his first-choice school, and we couldn’t be happier with our Foundations experience.”

Why work with us?

A four-year degree is an enormous investment. New college grads carry an average student loan debt of more than $30,000.  Working with a college counselor can help you plan for your college expenses in a structured way that helps your family make a realistic plan for college costs, communicate about affordability, and pursue financial aid opportunities with confidence.  

College counseling can help families effectively support their students in making independent choices with professional guidance.
