Welcome!

The New England Association for College Admission Counseling is the number one resource in New England for college admissions professionals. NEACAC fulfills its mission by developing and providing services, programs, and opportunities for members so they can serve and assist students in their transition from secondary to post-secondary education.

We aim to lead in shaping the college counseling, admission and enrollment profession by:

  • Developing ethical and social responsibility within the profession through the establishment and maintenance of high professional standards;
  • Supporting and encouraging collaborative relationships and providing professional development opportunities for all members;
  • Advocating for policies that impact the profession at the state, regional and national level; and
  • Fostering development of equal opportunities for, and access to, post secondary education for all students, utilizing the collective influence and knowledge of the members.

President's Message

Welcome to NEACAC! Founded in 1966, the New England Association for College Admission Counseling (NEACAC) leads, supports and advances the work of counseling, admission and enrollment professionals by promoting ethical responsibility, professional development, and advocacy as they help all students realize their full educational potential – with a particular emphasis on the transition from high school to college.  One of largest affiliates of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), NEACAC has over 3500 members and strives to welcome, assist, and support our counselors and their professional needs.  

This is an exciting year for our association. We are looking forward to welcoming thousands of admission and counseling professionals to our region, and to the city of Boston, for the 2017 NACAC National Conference. We are excited to share our city and show everyone the educational and professional opportunities we have for students throughout our region. We are also pleased to host a “Super Conference” with New York State Association for College Admission Counseling (NYSACAC) at Marist College. This will be a phenomenal professional development opportunity and time to collaborate with our colleagues in New York.

We continue to do great work within our region, offering incredible professional development opportunities that are relied upon to serve our members every year. We are here to assist new members and those that are looking to continuously grow and stay in tune with our profession. NEACAC also hosts college fairs throughout New England to connect students to colleges. However, all of this would not be possible without our members. We are governed by a talented and passionate board who carefully consider how we move forward. Our members drive this organization, and everyone has a voice. I encourage you to join a committee, reach out to anyone on the board, or attend an event to see our organization at work. For over 50 years, NEACAC has been a source of professionalism, guiding principles, and development for the counseling and admission community, and we are excited to continue our work in that tradition.

If you are new to the profession or found us in another way, I encourage you to explore our site, see who we are, and reach out if we can assist in any way. If you are familiar with our association, I encourage you to reach out to me or anyone on the board about getting involved. Our members are the ones who move us forward and I am so proud to work with each and every one of them throughout the year as President.

Sincerely,

Andrew Rosabianca
NEACAC President, 2017-18
Director of Admission Operations, Saint Anselm College
