Joe Korfmacher, College Counselor

For the last nine years, Joe has been advising families through the college process—whether it was via his leadership at Xavier High School in New York as the director of the college counseling program; his tenure as a guidance and college counselor at St. Peter’s Prep; or through his own private college counseling firm, JDK College Consulting. And Joe truly cares about giving his students a solid path to succeed: at Xavier, he was instrumental in rebuilding the college group guidance structure and curriculum and creating an intensive application summer program for rising seniors.

In addition to his experience with students in groups and one-on-one, Joe comes to Collegewise with a cache of impressive affiliations within the admissions and test prep worlds. He was recently the chair of the New York State ACT Council and is a current member of the New Jersey ACT Council; served as former chair and board member of the International College Options Organization; and is currently a member of both the New York State Association of Independent Schools as well as the National Association of College Admissions Counseling (NACAC).

And did we mention he’s a super-star in the rugby world? Yes, Joe was a graduate of Saint Joseph’s University, where he was inducted into the Saint Joseph’s University Rugby Hall of Fame (2013). When Joe is not taking on the world as “Super Counselor”, he is “Super Dad” at home, where he spends time with his wife and 2-year-old daughter.
