Meet The Team

Expertise and motivation are key components to building the strongest case for college admission. Meet the experts who will get you there:

  • Your ADMISSIONS COUNSELOR, a former admission officer from a top-tier university with the firsthand insight into designing a successful college application strategy.
  • Your COACH, an admissions expert with the project management and motivational skills to ensure you hit deadlines and milestones without breaking a sweat.

We take a collaborative approach to ensure you’re consistently supported, motivated, and empowered by the most up-to-date expertise and knowledge.

Build Your Case

Having the right admissions strategy matters. You’ll meet regularly with your team to thoughtfully plan and execute on your approach to coursework, extracurricular activities, testing, and other key components in your college applications.

Strategic analysis of your current academic and extracurricular profile allows us to see where you are, in order to address any gaps in your experience or identify ways to highlight even further your strengths.

We’ll spend time developing a well-rounded college list, help you narrow the field, and provide advice on how to demonstrate interest and get to know your reach, target, and likely schools. You’ll be steered through the nitty-gritty details of application forms and come up with a thoughtful, personalized approach to help you stand out from the crowd.

Be ready to hit the following points on your journey:

  • What matters most when selecting colleges?
  • What activities will make me stand out?
  • When is the ideal time for me to prep for and take standardized college entrance exams–PSAT®, ACT®, SAT®, AP®?
  • What kind of leadership opportunities should I pursue?
  • What do I want to major in?
  • How will I pay for it all?

Your counseling team helps you figure out each point over the course of one-on-one conversations that tackle any details and all concerns.

We’ll also help you make sense of the complex web that is affording college. From merit aid, to scholarships, to grants, to deadlines, we know the score on how you’ll get the most out of your dollar.

Write Your Story

Your counselor, a former college admissions officer, has read countless college essays over the years and knows what it takes to stand out. Together, you’ll brainstorm which of your passions and anecdotes best relay your strengths as a college candidate.
