College HHI

College HHI is Hilton Head Island’s only business comprised of educational consultants plus college admission strategists, located on the south end in a newly renovated 1,000-square-foot student union. Darcie Patrick is a NACAC (National Association for College Admission Counseling) member and a Professional Member of IECA (Independent Educational Consultants Association), a credential reserved for independent educational consultants who have demonstrated a professional mastery with years of experience and who adhere to the highest code of ethics.

Together, Patrick and her seasoned team at College HHI provide in-depth knowledge of schools, learning styles, college admission criteria, ACT/SAT strategies, and scholarships. Although Patrick’s passion area is college, her team of educational consultants have decades of experience to help a family find the right fit in a boarding school, therapeutic program, wilderness program, summer camp or gap year to meet a student’s social, emotional, physical, spiritual and intellectual needs, while also helping to manage a family’s financial budget.

Patrick has had the privilege of being hired as the private college advisor for four out of the last five Hilton Head Island High School valedictorians; hosting Senior Seminars at HHIHS; launching District 7770’s Rotary Youth Leadership Award’s College Bootcamp; working with students from over 10 countries/12 states; and creating successful college admission strategies for students at Hilton Head Preparatory School, Heritage Academy, Hilton Head Christian Academy, Connections Academy, Thomas Heyward Academy, JP2, IJGA and DACA/first-generation students at Hilton Head Island and Bluffton High Schools. “No two roads to college are the same, and the paths aren’t always clear, nor should you trust everything you read on the internet,” she said. “I absolutely LOVE my job (and fabulous team) and look forward to continuing to advocate on behalf of the students of the Lowcountry!”
