Everything But the Essay                                                                                   Grades 9, 10 & 11

 

The College Admissions process is changing!  High school students will learn about colleges, universities, majors and activities.  A self-assessment is given to help guide students to the right type of college for them and an initial list is created.  We explore what college admissions professionals look for in candidates and create a personal plan to showcase the student.  The Common App, Naviance and the Coalition are covered and students will open their ‘locker’.

 

Classes have a minimum of 4 students and a maximum of 10.

On-Demand program scheduling is available.  Do you have a group of 3 or more students who want to take the program but need a different schedule?  Just ask!

 

Essays and Applications                                                                                      Grade 12

 

It's crunch time and very stressful for a lot of seniors. We start with a Family Meeting to brainstorm on the essays and rank the list by interest as well Reach, Target and Safety schools.  Students then plan their admissions approach and open their Common App, and Coalition Locker and App.  Naviance is updated and maintained. Drafting all the essays comes next and finalizing the application dates and plans.

This program is delivered via one-to-one coaching and typically 5 hour long sessions are needed in addition to the Family Meeting.
