We welcome clients as early as freshman and sophomore years to help them establish a strong high school foundation both academically and personally. At this early stage, our emphasis is not on college planning, but on helping students gain the most from their high school experiences. This may mean helping students find summer and extracurricular or identify factors that will optimize their academic success.
The formal college advising process begins from August to October of junior year and continues until students make the decision of where to matriculate on May 1 of their senior year.
Our overall objective is to guide the family in finding options where the student will not only get admitted, but thrive and find success once on campus. We do this through a series of sessions that provide advice and counsel about college admissions practices, colleges programs and offerings and step-by-step assistance through the application process.
If students are struggling with any step of the process, we devote the time necessary to help them find solutions and strategies that will facilitate the plan we have developed for them.
