After an initial consultation, we offer a comprehensive college planning package that can start at any point in high school and continues through the college application process.

All rising seniors participate in our Writing Workshop in preparation for college application essays. During this three-hour program, students will gain an understanding of the purpose of the essay and what college admissions officers seek in applicant writing.

The Writing Workshop features a presentation by Ms. Joann Polley, former Professor of Academic Writing and current grader of essays for The College Board.

In follow-up sessions with the student’s college consultant, the student refines topics and themes and develops strategies for the personal statement and supplemental essays.
