The CCES college counseling staff is comprised of three dedicated professionals who work to ensure that the college search is personally rewarding for every individual student. Each college counselor holds active memberships in both the National Association for College Admission Counseling and the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling.
Ivey Harrison brings valuable experience in both college admissions and secondary school college counseling to CCES. Before coming to CCES in 2011, she was Assistant Director of Admissions and a college advisor at her alma mater, the Darlington School in Rome, Georgia, where she served for five years. As college advisor, Ivey has worked under the direction of nationally known and widely respected veteran college counselor Sam Moss.
Prior to Darlington, Ivey worked in the Presbyterian College (PC) Admissions Office for three years after her graduation from PC. She rose to the position of Assistant Director of Admissions before moving to Darlington.
Ms. Harrison's professionalism, in-depth knowledge of the college admissions process, and deep understanding of independent school life and culture will prove important assets to the College Counseling program at CCES.
In describing her path to CCES, Harrison says: “Having the opportunity to work at both of my alma maters has been such a blessing, and I look forward to sharing the values that have been instilled in me with the students at Christ Church Episcopal School. I believe that the power of a community is exemplified by institutions like Darlington, PC and CCES, and I am so thankful to be joining another wonderful group of people to better the lives of our students."Melissa Langford
