Gerhardt Educational Endeavors is dedicated to working with students and their families throughout the college search and application process. We will offer guidance and support during the process to minimize stress and confusion. Our goal is to help you and your family to feel comfortable with your college options.

Brenda Gerhardt, PhD, is the founder and owner of Gerhardt Educational Endeavors. She is a first generation college student and believes that everyone deserves the opportunity to follow his or her dreams of attending college. She has a BS in Science Education from The Ohio State University, an MA in School Counseling from Eastern Michigan University and a PhD in Counselor Education from The Ohio State University. She had a broad background in public, private, suburban, and urban schools. 

Brenda has over 20 years of experience in education and holds current Ohio state licenses as a teacher, school counselor and administrator. Brenda understands that school counselors are well qualified and provide great support in the college search process but they are often hampered by large caseloads and limited time. She can provide individualized attention and time to each student.

Students with learning differences, IEPs, 504s and mental health diagnoses are welcome and supported at Gerhardt Educational Endeavors. We can meet with you to evaluate assessments and aid the transition from high school to college.
