College Application Essentials

This service is for students starting the application process that have a list of colleges but need help navigating through the whole process. After a brief intake meeting, we develop an application strategy and timeline that will maximize a student's accomplishments and interests in a way that sets them on the best course possible. We also help families navigate the financial aid process and scholarship opportunities. 

Our goal is to help students put their best foot forward in their applications and guide families through an informed decision making process for financial aid and enrollment.
