Applying to college is not a one-size-fits-all process.
We help each student find their fit.
The Importance of Fit
When students choose a path that aligns with their passions, abilities, and interests, they are more likely to thrive - academically and personally. We don't believe in using rankings to create a college list. Most people don't pick friends or spouses based on rankings, and colleges shouldn't be chosen that way either. We spend time engaging and talking with students to help them determine the right colleges.
We believe second semester of sophomore year is the best time to start this process. Our advice to younger students is to do well in school, take courses of rigor where appropriate, and explore activities that interest them.
There are many factors to consider in determining fit of a college, including the cost. Educating students and parents empowers them to make decisions that are right for their family. Unlike many college counselors, we don't charge a flat package rate – we bill by the hour. This allows families to use our services in the way that best fits the family's needs.
Why Hire a College Counselor?
Most public high school counselors have several hundred students on their caseload - they simply don't have the ability to spend one-on-one time with students.
College counselors can also act as a buffer between students and parents. Teens often find it easier to talk to someone other than their parents. After the first meeting, we primarily meet one-on-one with students and keep parents up to date on our progress.
