hire an independent college counselor to get the individualized attention you need

The college application process is complicated, and requires the timely submission of several components. Parents want whatʼs best for their children; their children disagree what “best” is. Often there is friction, and the process can become very stressful for families.


High school counselors do offer some support and guidance throughout this application process. However, counselors are responsible for numerous students and are unable to provide the individualized attention many students need. In addition, many counselors do not have the time to devote to extensive college searches and may offer only “run of the mill” school suggestions.


College admission has become increasingly competitive, and it is important that students broaden their searches to include a range of institutions - safety, target and reach - rather than just the popular schools that guidance counselors are familiar with.  As independent college advisors, we keep current on admissions criteria and school standings and continually update our college database. This allows us to generate a personalized list of recommended schools that align best with each studentʼs unique interests and ambitions.


Applying to college is about taking that next step toward a successful future - it should be exciting!  With our comprehensive advising solutions, we offer assistance, guidance and support throughout the entire application process.
