College Admissions Counseling

We adopt a tailor made, holistic approach to college counseling.  Your counselor is dedicated and assigned to you – we do not believe in a committee system.  We select our counselors because of their breadth of knowledge at both the high school counseling and college admissions levels.  We use a well-known national recruiting firm and screen our counselors intensely.  All counselors are accredited members of local and national associations, such as the National Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) and the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA).

While we recommend that you start with us as early as possible, we are able to assist you at any time, even if you are a high school senior with looming application deadlines.  Please keep in mind, however, that we are not an essay writing service.  While helping to create compelling essays is a component of our services, it is only one facet of our comprehensive programs:
