At Plan the Path, our educational consultants provide strategic advice for your college admissions and post-secondary search. On the journey through college admissions, we teach students self-advocacy, autonomy, and responsibility.
We are concerned with more than just the outcome of the college search; we value the process. In the end, the choices the students make about schools reflect a deeper understanding of themselves and their needs rather than superficial concerns.
We have decades of experience guiding students. One of our greatest strengths is our ability to listen to our students and comprehend their concerns, fears, and needs. When considering schools, we are concerned with “best fit” rather than the notion of “the best.”
Responding with empathy, support, and a healthy sense of humor, we help young adults in all parts of the college admissions process, from developing school lists to writing essays and navigating standardized tests. Our students rely on our depth of knowledge and experience to guide them through this difficult but exciting process.
We provide expert guidance on the most effective college admissions strategies, navigating students and families through every step of the application process.
We offer unmatched expertise in shepherding students from therapeutic programs to success in college admissions.
We have authoritative insight on educational supports for students with learning differences, and we match young adults with colleges providing resources tailored to their needs.
Our team guides students to personal development programs or a secondary post-graduate year that prepare them for college.
For students confronting educational crises or disciplinary actions, we offer skillful counseling to get them back on track.
We coach each student to write a personal essay that captures their voice, personal history, and distinctive identity through exemplary storytelling.
With our comprehensive view of the admissions landscape, we advise freshmen and sophomores on how to cultivate a rich portfolio of academics and extracurriculars in preparation for college applications.
