College Admissions & Career Launch Coaching

Why Hire a College Coach?
(also known as a College Admissions or an Educational Consultant)

Attending college is a unique and wonderful milestone in life that sets the stage for future success. The college and career landscape is vast, constantly changing, and is increasingly complicated and competitive. We will help you navigate smoothly through this landscape.

With the high costs of college attendance ($60,000 – $220,000), second only to the cost of owning a home, college coaching is smart investment. We’ll help you make informed decisions, save time and reduce stress.

What is coaching and how does it work?

Students are in the driver’s seat. Our customized coaching helps students determine who they are, who they want to be, how to get there. Our guidance facilitates better outcomes and greater choices. With over 18 years of work experience with students, we understand the challenges students face, and how to provide concrete encouragement. We provide timely advice by staying current with the college and career trends through professional development activities and college visits. We students prepare and plan for their unique and successful phase2.

We help students understand their choices, and the best steps to follow in order to reach their desired destination. We offer college success coaching to students at various educational stages: grades 8-10grades 11-12 (college application process) and during college.

Without this timely help, I would be struggling...
