College Services

with Gary Whitehouse

Hello San Ramon FC Families!

I am here to assist all San Ramon FC families with any information you need for your college selection process. I have been working with both soccer players who are looking to play in college and academic-only students looking for the right fit for college.

Below, you will find the College Fit Finder tool - an excellent resource designed to help you with the college selection process.  

I am experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of the college process and have been helping families for 17 years and counting. There is no charge for the first hour or so of my time. If you would like to schedule a phone call to help with any part of the process, please email me at gwhitehouse@sanramonfc.comYou may read some of the comments from my many satisfied clients here:


Gary's Tips

January/February Tips:

High School Seniors:

Hopefully at this point, you have completed your four-year school applications. If you are still in the recruiting process and have not applied, make sure you are communicating with the coach and know when the deadline is to apply as a student-athlete. There is a variance for most schools for applying.

If you have completed all your applications are waiting for acceptance notices from schools, make sure have double-checked that each school has everything they need. Here is a link with more information: What To Do While Waiting for Admission Decisions

High School Juniors:

At the end of your school’s semester or trimester, request an unofficial transcript from your high counselor to have ready when a college coach asks for your academic information. If you have taken a real SAT and or ACT, have this downloaded into a PDF file as well. When reaching out to college coaches, have a copy of your resume, transcript, and test scores, in one PDF file. If you have not taken a standardized test, then just include the first two documents.  

High School Freshmen and Sophomores: 

At the end of your school’s semester or trimester, request an unofficial transcript from your high counselor so you know what your cumulative GPA is. Cumulative GPA is what colleges use in the application process.
