College Admissions

We believe the college admissions process can be an empowering journey of self-reflection and discovery.

Our college admissions approach is driven by the individual student: we help them identify and get into the schools best suited to their personal goals and ambitions.  Our coaches work collaboratively to stay ahead of trends in the constantly shifting admissions world and to advise families accordingly, helping students identify and successfully apply to best-fit colleges.

Admissions experts partner with families to navigate the competitive landscape and multifaceted admissions process using a thoughtful strategy to promote the student’s strengths and interests. We seek to identify and secure the best possible opportunity for each individual.

Our coaches work with students as early as freshman year to help families stay ahead of the process at every step.

We help students with:

  • College list creation and visit planning
  • Crafting a meaningful personal statement and supplemental essays
  • Understanding the application process, including strategies for Early Decision/Action
  • Navigating standardized test strategy and timeline
  • Interview preparation and full application review
  • Deferral and waitlist strategy
  • Course selection and development of extracurricular life
  • Arts consulting (leveraging artistic talent and/or applying to BFA/MFA programs)
