We try hard to provide a variety of options that make college counseling affordable for all. The goal is to help families and students feel comfortable and less stressed going through the admission process. If you have questions about any of the following services, please just ask.
$150.00 for initial or ongoing hourly consultations with students at any age. These hours can be pre-purchased in groups. These hours are for face to face OR virtual meetings with parents or students. This time could be used for parent questions, specific review of applications, discussion of financial aid or scholarship opportunities. It does not include time for research or work done out of the meeting by the consultant. It will NOT include keeping students on deadline, making sure students are completing applications (ie: sending transcripts and scores and letters of recommendation), or following up with students to make sure submissions are complete. These services are provided under our various global programs.
We work with your family and student to do it all. Areas of interest and career discussion, suggestion of schools to consider, help with applications and freshman scholarships, essay brainstorming and review. We like to start with students as they begin junior year of high school and stay with them through the entire process during their senior year.
