We complement your local counselor’s efforts by working one-on-one with your child, customizing a strategic plan of action, which will help your child get into the best college of his or her choice and meet his or her academic and personal needs. Busy high school counselors simply have too many students to give the kind of individualized attention necessary, particularly in this highly competitive admission environment. Our goal is to help students find college options that will meet their personal and academic needs.
Since most high school students have a college/guidance counselor at school, why should we look outside for private assistance?
Will having a private college admissions counselor give my student a better chance of getting into schools?
We welcome and encourage communication from parents but we recommend that at this juncture in your student’s academic life, he or she work independently of you. It is important that students own the process of applying to college. It is tremendously satisfying to complete this process without too much parental intervention. However, if at any time parents have questions, we welcome and encourage their calls. Our policy is always to contact parents immediately should a student become unresponsive to work requests or irresponsible in any way.
