With our comprehensive view of the admissions landscape, we advise freshmen and sophomores to cultivate a rich portfolio of academics and extracurriculars in preparation for college applications.
By the time students are in their junior year of high school, they need to have accumulated the combination of classes, grades, activities, and leadership experience that will make them stand out to college admissions officers. I offer freshman and sophomore students the benefit of long-term planning and cultivation of a path to success. With our comprehensive view of the admissions landscape, we understand what colleges want in prospective students, and we advise students to create the best possible portfolio.
When students begin with us during their freshman or sophomore years, I create a strategic plan to ensure that when the students apply to college, their academic and extracurricular accomplishments match college criteria:
I advise on coursework, extracurriculars, additional academics needed for weak areas, and other programs to ensure a student’s application is strong, well-rounded, and comprehensive.
I examine the child’s interests, strengths, and challenges so the student and family can make the best decisions possible.
I help students and parents to understand their options and make the best choice for academic success.
GROWTH MINDSET APPROACH
I provide counseling on programs and opportunities that can support a student’s growth.
When we start working with students in the early years of high school, we prepare them for the college journey and develop close relationships that allow us to guide them more effectively. When they apply for admissions, we can rest easy knowing that we have created a pathway for success.
