DA’s Director of College & Transition Counseling Brings the World to YOU!

Denver Academy’s (DA) Director of College and Transition Counseling Dr. Jill Corbin is in demand around the WORLD! 

Dr. Corbin was one of just 14 high school college counselors picked and funded from 800 applicants to visit and learn in person about the University College in Dublin, Ireland in February. The university ranks in the top 1% of higher education institutions worldwide and has become Ireland’s global university. Dr. Corbin had the opportunity to meet its world-renowned faculty and current American students, and also tour the state-of-the-art facilities. 

In the same month, Dr. Corbin was featured as an expert speaker for a presentation by Eye to Eye national. In addition to a breakout session led by Dr. Corbin, the presentation also included information about Eye to Eye’s new initiative, LD Alliance. DA is investigating this club-based initiative for high schools that aims to empower, organize and mobilize students who learn differently by providing the resources they need to build community, raise awareness and engage in advocacy. Here’s a link to the complete presentation

And these are just a few of Dr. Corbin’s accolades! She is among the top experts around the globe in her knowledge of ways to help high school students with learning differences navigate the next steps after high school. Dr. Corbin visits more than 20 colleges, universities, and post-graduate institutions annually to discover how to better serve our DA community. With 17 years of experience in higher education administration and high school college counseling, she speaks at four to five conferences per year for national and regional audiences. Dr. Corbin founded and currently serves as the co-chair of the National Association for College Admissions Counseling Learning Differences Special Interest Group. She is the immediate past president of the Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling and is an American Institute Certified Educational Planner (CEP), considered the highest level of competency in the field of educational planners.
