College Admissions Consulting

EA

Our college advising program has four components:

Assessment | Customized College Search | Curriculum Options | Tracking

 


  1. Assessment

    (separate sessions for parents and students)
    By gaining insight into students’ strengths, interests and goals and evaluating how they interact with the world around them, we help students develop criteria for their college search that they can use to evaluate choices.

What we discuss:

  • Grades, course choices, learning styles
  • Extracurricular and summer activities
  • Standardized Testing Plans
  • College majors and careers
  • Your responses to our in-depth questionnaires

We counsel you on:

  • Current trends in college admissions
  • College opportunties
  • Transition to college realities and how to prepare
  • College Cost, Affordability and Financial Aid

  1. Customized College Search

    We completely customize the college search to your needs
    You are not like anyone else. So by identifying opportunties that engage you and the support you may need, we help position you for success in the admissions process. Your current beliefs and values will always be part of you, but you will also change. Our approach guides you in thinking about the person you are becoming and encourages reflection so you can make good decisions about colleges and programs.
