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. 

Cohorts are currently offered to students in grades 6 – 8; 9 – 10; Grade 11; Grade 12; and Community College. Elementary school students should be guided by “Ten Steps to Helping Your Child Succeed in School.” Following the guidance provided in these texts will assist parents in positioning students to maximize their middle through high school experience, which is the focus of our College Planning Cohort program.

“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.

The college planning activities for high school students in grades 9 – 10 are entirely self-guided, unless students are participating in a community-, faith-, and school district-based cohort. The activities cover the important time-sensitive issues confronting high school students during the freshman and sophomore years of developing comprehensive college-bound plans. The activities revolve around issues raised in “A High School Plan for Students with College-Bound Dreams” and “Show Me the Money: A Comprehensive Guide to Scholarships, Financial Aid, and Making the Right College Choice.”

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
