Custom-Made College Search and Application Help

There is a lot of pressure on high school students these days with AP classes, extracurriculars, work and other responibilites, making a college search a daunting task when done alone. I'm here to help your student figure out what they are looking for in a school, what they are interested in, and what schools to apply to that are their best fit. I also help them along through the application process and in their essay writing. Should your student need some additional support, we can schedule consultations at the earliest convience. 

The Steps to College Counseling

Stengths and Interests-  

First we will discuss your strengths and interests to determine what major might be right for you. I know each student is unique, and we want to find what your are passionate about to help you have a great college experience. There are hundreds of different majors at a wide range of schools, and we'll find the right match for you. 


School Search-
No college is the same, and while schools might offer the same major, the campuses will each have a different feel.  Because of this, I want to make sure you find a college that fits you. Maybe you like the feel of a large state school, like the University of Washington. Or perhaps you are interested in a Jesuit education that can be found at Gonzaga or Santa Clara. You might like a sunnier atmosphere, so we can look at schools in California, or if you want a very traditional college feel, we can start our search on the East Coast. Public or private, big or small, in-state or out-of-state, we'll cover all options to make sure you find a school that clicks with you.
