Christina Acker

Admissions Expert

Christina has 20+ years of experience working in education including Admissions at University of Southern California’s Keck School of Medicine. She has spent the last 7 years at a private high school in the Los Angeles area supporting students and their families navigate the college admissions process.


I am dedicated to serving students and their families. In addition, I have a background in mental health that can be very helpful to students during this stressful process. I am very passionate about this profession and committed to helping students find their best fit college.

Counseling Style:

I am a dedicated counselor who wants to help your child achieve their goals of attending a college that is right for them. I work with students to realize their unique abilities and strengths and use that when searching for the college of their dreams.


Outside of work I enjoy volunteering at my children’s school as the PTO President and Girl Scouts of America Leader. I also enjoy running and working out.

“Now I am successfully attending one of my top schools. Without your help, I don’t know how I would have managed this entire process as I had no one to go to since I will be the first to go to college in the U.S. Thank you for being such a bright, motivating, and inspiring figure in my life.”

“Without your help and assistance during this whole process, I would have never gotten into my dream school. Thank you so much, I cannot fully express it, truly thank you Mrs. Acker. Without your kind words and positive feedback I wouldn’t stand where I am today.”
