Our Advising Services

We are a Full-Service Program - Customized for Each Student

The sooner a student enrolls, the better their prospects for success.

Our comprehensive package thoroughly educates & guides students and their families through each step of the admissions process. This is how we do it:

 

  • We prefer to start with families when their child is in 7th or 8th grade, but we accept students at any stage of their high school or undergraduate career.

 

  • We cap our number of students in each class at 30 total for each grade level, in order to maintain a stellar level of service once the students hit the all important application season.

  • We assist all areas of the College Application Journey including things like: 

    • Financial Aid​

    • Athletic Recruitment

    • Scholarships

    • Specialty Admissions, i.e. Medical / Veterinarian, Law, or Business School

  • At the genesis of each academic year, we craft a list of tangible and intangible items that the student needs to engage in order to increase their competitive advantage. We set forth the plan for that academic year and upcoming summer to outline what the student should do inside and outside the classroom and, most importantly, in the greater community. 

  • We get involved in every aspect of our students' journey including academic, extracurricular, community and outside activities, in order to best steer them to their dream schools. I work with and guide them in myriad ways to become a a more competitive applicant, such as:​

    • Developing and improving academic habits and skills 

    • Career development, where we assess their strengths, affinities, interests, hobbies and passions to see how they can be utilized in relation to desired college majors and career goals.

    • Assist in securing internships, job shadows, research opportunities, and independent passion projects. 

 

  • In addition to Career Development, the bulk of the counseling sessions focus on the college application  process, which entails:

    • Creating individualized objectives tailored to each student's interests and passions

    • Construction of a Comprehensive (intelligent and pragmatic) College List,  covering Safety, Target and Reach Schools, which entails advising students on how to prudently research colleges and universities on their lists.  

    • Teaching my students the "tricks of the  trade", how to engage in Admissions' Correspondence; communicating with Regional Readers, preparing for College Visits/College Fairs/virtual and in-person College Information Sessions.

    • In depth work on the Application of which every single line and activity section are filled out together. This entails:

      • Activities' Resume

      • Main and Supplemental Essays

      • Personal Statements/Personal Insight Questions

  • After Applications are submitted, we guide students through:

    • Interview preparations
