Our Comprehensive Package covers all aspects of the college planning process. We also help drive the process to ensure the student is on course and hitting all the important milestones along the way. You get a college coach and a project manager!
A behind-the-scenes look at the ever-changing world of college admissions – what colleges are looking for, the most important factors in admissions decisions, and the pieces that make up an application packet.
We will explore what your student is looking for in a college, their hopes and dreams, and ultimately which colleges will be a fit. We will get to know your student, and they will get to know themselves, really well!
We will track the multiple requirements for each application, provide guidance on the different admissions deadlines, and break the process down into manageable steps.
A full review of your student’s transcripts, test scores, activities and interests from the perspective of an admissions committee. Advice on high school course selection as well as SAT/ACT planning.
Your student will have a manageable list of colleges that are a fit academically, socially and financially; colleges that meet their needs inside and outside of the classroom, where they can be happy and successful.
Your student will create applications and essays that highlight their strengths and accomplishments, and express who they are in a confident and authentic way.
Using the MBTI personality assessment and a series of "brain games,” we will discover your student’s natural strengths and interests, and match those with majors or careers that would be a good fit.
You will know what your family can expect to receive in terms of financial aid; how to apply for financial aid; the various types of aid (merit and need-based) available; and how to interpret financial aid award letters.
Once admission offers arrive, we'll help you evaluate the options and prepare for next steps. You will be confident that your student is heading to a college that is just right!
