The CCES college counseling team 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 with both the National Association for College Admission Counseling and the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling, as well with the Association for College Counselors in Independent Schools.
Linda Schulz, Director of College Counseling, brings over 30 years of college counseling experience to CCES, both as a former college admission officer and as an independent school college counselor. She has led the CCES team since 2008.
Bartley Sides, Associate Director of College Counseling, joined the team in 2015 with seven years of experience in college admissions at Furman University as well as the University of Georgia. Originally from Cheraw, South Carolina, Mr. Sides received his BA in Communication Studies and Sociology from Furman University and his MA in Management from Wake Forest University.
Lindsey Waters, Associate Director of College Counseling, joined the CCES College Counseling team for the 2015-16 school year. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communications from Furman University and a Masters in Counselor Education from Clemson University.
In making the switch to the school counseling side of the desk, she comments: “Throughout my career in college admissions, I enjoyed identifying the individual interests and strengths of each student. I am inspired to work with students during this time in their life and to guide them to a college that is their own best fit.”
