Meet Your Admissions Counselor

At PHC, our admissions process is both personal and understandable. As an applicant, you will interact directly with the same admissions counselor throughout your college decision process, from answering your initial questions on the phone, to helping you with your application. Read below to find out more about your counselor.  


Ardee Coolidge


Greetings and salutations! My name is Ardee Coolidge.  I began work here as an admissions counselor shortly after finishing at Patrick Henry College in May of 2012. During my high school years I traveled the country competing in both national speech and debate competitions as well as representing my church, 4-H club, and the great state of Florida. During my time at PHC, I was challenged to grow both academically and spiritually in an environment unlike any I had ever experienced. My time on campus included competing in national Mock Trial and Moot Court, making friendships that will remain with me the rest of my life, and of course working on my degree in government. I love traveling and meeting new people and it is a great honor to serve as your Admissions counselor. I cannot wait to help you to discover where God desires you to spend your college career and look forward to telling you all about PHC!

Aimee Stauf


Hey there! I'm Aimee Stauf. Though originally from Los Angeles, CA, I have also lived in the Mojave Desert and Waco, TX. I attended PHC right after high school, and jumped into the drama club, Eden Troupe, chorale, the chapel guild, and even played some ultimate Frisbee on the side. A Journalism major, I worked with World Magazine in Asheville, NC, travelled to New York City for a college media conference, and taught a yearbook class at a local Classical Christian High School. Although I graduated with a degree in Journalism, I am fascinated by education and will pursue a master’s degree in that field.

A few things I love: My savior and Friend, Jesus Christ. Telling the Gospel story—God restores broken vessels. Sunsets. Beautiful things. Meeting new people. Old books.

Stephen Pierce


Hello to all! My name is Stephen Pierce, and I am an Admissions Counselor here at Patrick Henry College. I graduated PHC in May of 2015 and couldn’t stay away! I am from North Carolina. During high school, I participated in homeschool baseball and basketball, ran basketball camps and swimming lessons, played piano, and helped lead music in my church.

While enrolled at PHC, I participated in the College Chorale, Chapel Guild, was a member of the basketball team for four years, was a member of Campus Safety, led music in my church, and was a Resident Assistant, all the while pursuing my Classical Liberal Arts degree in the Music Track. I have also been a Teen Camp Counselor for three years, and this past year I was the Head Counselor.

I look forward to spending time with as many of you prospective students as possible and anticipate watching the Lord work in your lives in great and miraculous ways!
