for parents

Applying to college is not what it used to be. Times have changed! At CollegeStrategy we help students and families with a proven simple course of action for getting the job done. No need to nag your student during his final high school days. We specialize in making the process one that the student owns and therefore gets excited about tackling. Once your student has decided where to apply, we distill the process, during regular meetings and ongoing communications. Immediately, we begin analyzing the work ahead with an effective plan of attack tailor-made for each individual. We foster the student throughout the process so you won’t need to. Students shoulder the responsibility while we quietly and effectively make sure that the application work is properly completed, paperwork sent and deadlines are met.

It’s true, the process is relentless and we demand a lot from our students, but under our guidance your student will get the job done in a timely way. And if like so many, you or your student is concerned about the “all important essay”, don’t worry. We’ll be there every step of the way. A college essay should convey something deeper about the student, a new dimension: what he thinks about; what he has learned; who he strives to become. Our essay coaches will help your student to brainstorm topics that will make your student shine and we won’t settle for anything less than his or her very best.

In this business there are no guarantees…we can’t make claim that your student will get into his first choice school (although most of our students did in 2016) but we can promise that in the end, your student will experience an exhilarating sense of accomplishment. If you don’t believe us, we’ll be happy to put you in touch with former students and their parents.
