During a student’s junior year, we will provide a thorough description of the admissions process, including an evaluation of a student’s transcript and extracurricular activities and a standardized testing plan. 

Meeting with us for guidance and support will empower the student and help him or her develop a competitive edge when preparing for college admission. Each student will get an individualized plan, focusing on defining a “balanced college list,” and effective ways to present himself or herself to colleges.
