At this level the focus is on the high school student, and explores his or her career goals, specific skills, talents, and priorities, including the arts and sports, extracurricular activities, and social environments.
We begin with a comprehensive discussion and review of applicable academic and test records, and the completion of a Student/Family Profile. This helps us better understand the student, family values, priorities, and preferences, as well as strengths, needs, and learning styles.
Depending on the school, the admissions process can be extremely rigorous at this level, and our support matches the required intensity. We work with you to prepare competitive college applications, timely test & application schedules based upon binding and non-binding application plans, essays, selecting references, preparing for campus visits and required interviews, and we go over financial aid & scholarship options, and where possible we advocate with schools on your behalf.
We guide you through each step of the application in order to produce a profile that best presents individual strengths and interests to the schools of your choice. Once applications are submitted and school notifications have been received, whether admitted, denied, deferred, or wait listed, we continue to guide parents and students to a final resolution.
