College Planning Done Right
A strong college application reflects years of mindful planning and thousands of little decisions that, when better informed and guided, reflects the most authentic version of your son or daughter. For the student, their job is to live day to day with focus and determination, mindful of longer term goals like college and career. Our in person and online programming balances academic advising (which classes, how to get the best grades, what matters to colleges) with college planning (which tests, requirements for admission, visits, essay, financial aid, and the application). To get the best results, we have found that starting earlier allows for grade appropriate measures that build toward a well-organized and prepared high school senior.
Statement of ethics: We believe that the student is the face of the application and therefore stand behind the mindful decision to never contact colleges on behalf of the student. As members of NACAC and IACAC, professional organizations providing standards of best practices, we believe that through their hard work and our guidance, the student can earn and enjoy their own success!

When to Start College Planning
The sooner students and parents think about how the day to day decisions affect longer term academic outcomes, the better. By starting early, parents and students tend to have more freedom and flexibility to utilize the college planning process as one of growth and empowerment.
Here is how our college planning integrates with Study Skills. Since our programming is tailored to the individual student, any student in one of our study skills programs will receive knowledge and information that will help them when they fully transition to the College Application Year Program and beyond. Start early, stress less.
