College Counseling

College counseling

Be more than just a number!

There are literally thousands of great colleges out there and only one you. It can be overwhelming. It’s also full of opportunity if you have the right strategy. Great students need to make sure they are more than just another number when it comes to the college admissions process. We can advise you on everything from high school course selection and finding compelling summer opportunities to interview prep and specific application strategies. Who should write your letters? Should you visit a campus? Early action or early decision? Our students are applying to a range of selective schools — from your small midwestern liberal arts colleges to elite universities on either coast. We are here to help you figure out your options, find your fit, and get in.

Our college counselors work one-on-one with students and families to develop a comprehensive picture of your application profile. If there are areas that need more attention (extra-curricular involvement is a big one), we help you come up with a strategy to address it. Your college counselor will be available when needed throughout the process. We can come to you or meet at our office, whichever is easiest for you. We are here to make the college process full of possibility, not stress.
