100% of our students HAVE BEEN admitted to college
We teach every one of our students how to be efficient and maintain a smart, scholarly focus throughout the college preparation, search, and application process. Because of our approach, our students never have to question if they should have worked harder on the applications to their chosen schools. Our focus on differentiation and self-marketing gives students the tools to:
Develop and sharpen a unique, competitive admissions angle.
Execute a "capstone project" that involves leadership and executive skills.
Sharpen communication and interview skills through extensive practice.
In addition, our preparation curriculum is engaging and excites students about preparing for their futures! You can find more information about specific elements of our programs below!
THE LEAP EVALUATION INTERVIEW
We evaluate all new students and evaluate their readiness for college in the four LEAP categories: LANGUAGE, EMOTIONAL, ACADEMIC, and PARENTAL. The LEAP evaluation is a continuously evolving blueprint for the candidate development process that is revisited multiple times during our college consulting programs.
DEVELOPING YOUR ACADEMIC ANGLE
What sets us apart from other college advising services is not what we do, but how we do it. Our focus on differentiation gives students a competitive advantage by crafting a strategy to stand out amongst the "rest of the pack." The Academic Angle program transforms students into the sharpest, most marketable candidates for admission by teaching strategy that concentrates on making and realizing future academic and career goals.
MARKETING YOUR SKILLS, TALENTS, AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS
The search for the right college begins with exploring oneself, rather than a list of colleges. Our students create a self-marketing plan to differentiate themselves from other applicants and we assist students in developing a strengths-based profile that matches aptitudes and interests with colleges, majors, and career paths.
BUILDING THE BEST-FIT COLLEGE LIST
Our students learn to exercise their power of choice! Students develop key college criteria and apply their best-fit factors to the college search process. In addition, our students also learn how to narrow their choice of colleges to a manageable list. We also help prepare both students and families for meaningful evaluative campus visits.
SHARPENING COMMUNICATION SKILLS ON ESSAYs and in INTERVIEWS
Our students are guided through the makings of a strong personal statement that reflects their strengths and personality. We also provide professional feedback on all written work to ensure that student essays are as creative and compelling as possible. We assist students in preparing resumes, professional email correspondence, and powerful online profiles to initiate their interest and career development. We also train students to confidently and concisely share their goals and unique personal story during interactions with college representatives.
COMPLETING APPLICATIONS AND NAVIGATING THE COLLEGE ADMISSION CYCLE
We provide students with the means to track their applications, essays, letters of recommendation, transcripts, standardized tests, and more! Students enrolled in the full program also benefit from having their top application sent to a committee of three former college admissions directors for final review before submission. After admission, we help our students and their families revisit priorities and examine realities to make informed decisions on where to enroll.
