Comprehensive Advising Services
We assist students and families at every step of their college application journey. We are here to support and guide you as you navigate this path. Whether it’s planning your college experience from the early stages of your high school career or assisting with some last minute decisions senior year, we are happy to help!
Most of our students benefit from our private 1:1 Partnered Path to College program, enrolling late in sophomore year or early in junior year. Our goal is to have students engaged throughout their junior year so that they can hit the ground running as soon as the application process begins, complete with college selection, application planning, goal assessment, a polished essay and a clear process and timeline outlined.
Some students find themselves late in junior year or early senior year, having started the process, overwhelmed and needing help. We offer several solutions from private guidance to summer support.
Our work begins with a Family Strategy Session designed to help your student set goals and priorities for the college application journey. During this 90-minute meeting we will explore and make recommendations for the student’s:
- Academic and extracurricular profile
- Standardized test scores and testing plan
- Career interests and possible college majors
- Initial college list and application timeline
- Further building out of the college list to include admissibility
- Essay theme development
- Common Application activities section
