Early Strategy & Planning Session: $200/ 60 minutes (Grades 8-10)
All students could use an early start to the college admissions process, as it can be daunting. We are not putting together a college list in 8th, 9th, and 10th grade. Rather, we lay the groundwork for a strategic high school experience that will set your student up for success in the college application process. This is a 60-minute session that will help your family learn how to maximize your student's high school experience and make strong decisions from the start. Typical conversations focus on course selection, summer experiences, test planning, extracurricular activities, leadership opportunities, and timeline expectations to ensure a smooth application process.
Strategy & Planning Session - $200/60 minutes (grades 11-12)
This is made for DIY families who plan to navigate the college search and application process on their own or with the help of a school counselor but would benefit from some extra oversight and guidance. Students and parents will submit records for review in advance, and the session will entail a comprehensive analysis and formation of an action plan. Lists of questions are encouraged in order to maximize productivity. Typical discussions center around formulation of an appropriate college list, testing timelines, early application deadline strategies and more.
