Why we are not a scholarship program

If you review the listing of “The 10 Biggest Scholarships in the World,” you will find the amounts to vary between $1,000 and $50,000 with the competition for such scholarships being greater than being offered admission to Harvard or Stanford. Whereas, institutional scholarships at hundreds of colleges, which may be a great deal less competitive, may vary from $500 to over $200,000! While we have assisted 6 students in being selected as Gates Millennium Scholars, their combined scholarship tally does not approach the institutional scholarships being awarded each year to our students attending the University of Richmond, Northwestern, Williams, Swarthmore, Amherst, Vanderbilt, Tennessee State, or Xavier University of Louisiana.

College Planning Cohorts (TM) is our national model. Developed by author, parent, and educational consultant, Mychal Wynn, for assisting students and families in ‘Owning’ the college planning process. Mr. Wynn draws from the latest student achievement and college access research, experiences of our students who are attending an array of colleges and universities, and conversations with college admissions and financial aid officers, to develop a comprehensive college-planning curriculum. 

 

Our program is offered free of charge to students participating in our cohort program through one of our school district partners. Other students may register for our online program or participate in a cohort through one of our faith- or community-based partners. 

Considering that SAT/ACT Prep programs and private college advisers can cost well over $2,000 for a few days or hours of support, our program is a affordable for most families at $499.95. However, prior to purchasing a registration, we encourage you to review the stories of students on our homepage. What these students, as well as Kristen and Breanna profiled on this page, have in common is that they are all hard working. Our program only has value to those students who are willing to, “Own the Process.”

“Owning” the process requires that students engage in the yearlong set of college planning activities provided in our on-line curriculum. An average of 2 required and 2 optional 30-minute units, per month, are sequenced throughout the school year. Students develop their profile, create an academic résumé, review their course schedule, set goals, identify their gifts and talents, and engage in self-reflection, as they are guided through a comprehensive process making themselves a competitive candidate for being offered admission to top colleges and qualifying for top scholarships.

While our program provides comprehensive guidance, students must discuss that they are learning with their parents, counselor, other students, or a college adviser. Such conversations are at the core of our school district and community-based cohorts.

Activities provide guidance in such areas as:

  • Engaging in a self-assessment based on the previous school’s performance
  • Setting school-year goals and maximizing the opportunities in their school and local communities
  • Maximizing local and summer opportunities to maximize their gifts and talents
  • Identifying and developing ‘Hooks’
  • Intentionally developing/updating their résumé during their first two years of high school
  • Using their résumé to set goals focused on desired college and scholarship outcomes
  • Developing/revising school-year action plans
  • Developing course schedules within a college and scholarship context
  • Ensuring effective progression toward scholarship qualifying SAT or ACT scores
  • Developing a preliminary listing of desired colleges and scholarships
  • Strategically connecting with colleges and programs
