With three years (MYP IV, V and DP1; grades 9, 10 and 11) of planning and preparation, the student (DP2; grade 12) is well prepared for the college application process. We will hone in on the student’s specific needs to create a powerful application that enables them to stand out from the rest.
We will work with you to craft your personalized Application Program, consisting of:
Academic Passion Align the student’s academic passion to the choice of a college major.
College Visits Narrow a list of colleges of choice.
Best Fit Colleges Not sure which colleges should fall in your select list? Finalize a balanced list of colleges that are a good match for the student, including some reach, target, and likely schools.
Activity Sheet Create an activity sheet which displays the academic and extracurricular successes the student has had from grades 8 to 12. The pre-application strategic planning will help the student have a powerful list that is a sure stand out. Unfortunately, the Common Application does not provide sufficient space to fully explain your extracurricular activities, awards and experiences. Therefore, it is important that students submit a separate college admissions resume or activity sheet with their application.
Final Testing Assess the top test scores of standardized tests to send to colleges.
College Applications Assist in answering the questions on the Common Application or the Coalition Application.

Your essay reveals who you are to the Admissions Committee. We are master storytellers and grammar fanatics. Brainstorm unique and effective essay ideas. Craft a distinct narrative that presents the “uniqueness” of the applicant.
Supplemental Essays Help to strategically answer supplemental questions and essays, specific to the college at hand.
Letter of Recommendations Identify teachers, counselor, and/or a coach who may be your best advocates. Enable them to write stellar letters of recommendation. Most top students have surprisingly bland recommendation letters. We advise you on which teachers would be best positioned to write you recommendation letters and how they would best be able to speak to your specific academic and personal strengths.
Resume Feedback Make your resume stand out. A good resume should provide a clear, succinct snapshot of who you really are, and the value you bring to the table. We have a deep understanding of the Admission Committee’s review process. With our resume review service, craft a stellar resume and get into your dream college!
Interviews Prepare for the interview by studying a list of frequently asked questions. Learn insider tips to impress the interviewer. We prepare you for both on-campus and alumni interviews by teaching you to dictate your interview so that you control what is written on the interview evaluations by guiding the content and flow of the interview itself.
