For Schools and Educators

The College Trail emphasizes the importance of collaborating with our students’ teachers and schools.  We strongly believe that communication across all stakeholders is critical to the student’s success.  We:

  • Aim to add value to partner schools’ college placement results.
  • Require our tutors, college counselors and academic coaches (tutors) to reach out to their school counterparts at the outset of every new student relationship, and require that our associates keep schools abreast of student progress.
  • Track all ongoing communications with schools for proper evaluation and follow-up.
  • Ask our students’ schools to encourage staff to open their doors to foster effective communication channels.
  • Offer tailor-made presentations and forums to students and families and their schools.
  • Believe in the “Power of Ten” – funding our foundation and giving 10% of our profits to services and scholarships for those in need.  We can help you with your tutoring and college admissions strategy.  College admissions and tutoring strategies from a company with a track record of success.

We also offer transition plans from competing services who have dissatisfied customers or who have gone out of business.See our special program for College Focus clients here:  collegefocus
