An Unparalleled Level of Guidance and Support

The college planning program that we developed is designed to bring low cost professional college planning guidance to large numbers of students anywhere in the United States through our college planning cohort program. However, for some students and families, a personalized college advising plan is more appropriate. Through personalized college advising, we will meet one-on-one with students and families to understand the student’s and family’s goals and devise a strategy for achieving those goals, together with an honest assessment of the body of work required to achieve such goals.

The one time fee will provide uninterrupted support through submitting college applications as a high school senior. At the beginning of each semester throughout high school, we would have a meeting and review the student’s résumé, profile, and course schedule. We would provide an assessment and our recommendations; discuss the student’s goals; and make minor course corrections as needed. Throughout this process, we will advise your family of the postsecondary pathways that we believe the student to be on and provide recommendations if you desire to adjust the pathways. We will share specialized programs and provide nominations to programs that we deem appropriate for the student and basically serve as the student’s personal college advisers. Additionally, we would guide the student in writing their essays for up to 3 colleges. If additional writing support is desired, we would provide additional sessions (currently priced at $99.95 per 1 – 1.5 hour session) as needed.
 
While parents are welcomed to attend any of our one-on-one sessions with the student, it is important for us to hear the student’s voice, forge trust, and understand the student’s aspirations. If the student desires to participate in a cohort discussion group in the future, he/she is welcomed to do so at no additional cost. However, our primary focus will be to provide ongoing support and to forge an advisory relationship with the student throughout high school.

 

Our youth leadership board created the following video that does a good job outlining our program and the impact that we have had on the lives of students. While not all students will have Kimberly’s outcomes (6 full college scholarships), our goal is to guide students as best as we can into avoiding or minimizing student loan debt. In this regard, we do a very good job.

 

While we cannot guarantee that every student in our program is awarded a full college scholarship, we are confident that we can assist every student and family with avoiding thousands of dollars in student loan debt and developing a college match list where the student has the best opportunities for being awarded thousands of dollars in institutional scholarships.
