If you're feeling overwhelmed by the college admission process, you're not alone. But getting where you want to be is easier than you think.
Four college counseling packages are offered. You can choose the one that best fits your needs, or design a custom-made package that has exactly what you want.
Bronze Package—the first step With this package, the student’s strengths and weaknesses will be identified in order to begin focusing the scope of college choices. Time, effort, and expenses in the college preparation process will be concentrated, detailed, and productive in order to provide critical and useful information to be used in the college search. At the end of this process, you will receive a list of six to eight colleges as recommended reach, match, and safety schools.
Silver Package—provides more help The Silver package is ideal for the high school student—usually starting their freshman or sophomore year—who needs help developing interests, skills, and academic curriculum. It includes everything in the Bronze package, plus the additional process of identifying concrete opportunities and extracurricular activities in order to develop a strong student profile before they enter their critical junior year. Academic rigor will be assessed so as to match the student’s ability with the correct intensity. This package includes college application assistance as well as suggestions for basic essay revisions.
Gold Package—guidance from start to finish The Gold package includes everything in the Silver package while also helping to navigate the entire college application process before and during the senior year. The student will receive continual counseling and assistance in order to complete and submit strong applications representing the best profile of their accomplishments and interests. More rigorous editing will be given to college application essays, as well as assistance with résumé writing and compiling an activities list. Assistance with Honors College applications, with essay revisions, is included.
Platinum Package—takes care of everything With the Platinum package, guidance will be provided for parents and students throughout the entire college application process. It includes all of the services in the Gold package, plus several add ons. This package ideally begins at the end of middle school or early freshman year to give the student time to develop a strong high school profile. One-on-one assistance will be given all the way through the senior year, helping the student cultivate every facet of their academic profile. Assistance will be given in identifying relevant activities to focus interests and to help find summer camps and/or internships to test potential fields of study. SAT/ACT registration is part of this package, as well as the organization and arrangement of all college visits. Detailed itineraries and logistics of traveling to geographically grouped colleges is included.
Student-Athlete Package This package is for student-athletes wanting to play NCAA DI, DII, DIII or NAIA sports in college. An academic counselor, together with an athletic coach, will assess the student-athlete's academic and athletic strengths. Six to eight colleges in the best division and conference will be recommended that match the student-athlete both academically and athletically. Assistance with submitting college applications, initiating and continued communication with college coaches, scheduled exposure events, a complete highlight/skills video and athletic résumé, as well as the arrangement of unofficial college visits will be included.
