Whether your student is Ivy-bound or trying to decide if college is right for him, you are most likely feeling some anxiety about these next big steps. As parents, we tend to get carried away and lose sight of our true aspirations for our children: to help them find a path that leads them to feel inspired, challenged, secure, and happy! Through the most personalized service and partnership with families, our goal is to help alleviate stress and SIMPLIFY the often daunting process.
Helping students find their individual paths starts with asking questions and setting goals. Through structured dialogue and genuine concern for students and their families, we help students understand the criteria for college selection that really matter to them. With an emphasis on “fit” and finding a college environment where they will be happy and thrive, we then guide students through action steps to increase their chances of admission to the schools where they will thrive.
