Many students are uncertain about their career goals (and that is OK and to be expected!).
We guide you through our unique process to explore and discover what you would like to do and where you would like to go in the future. You will gain an understanding of the world of work and become familiar with career search tools that you will use now and later in your life.
As part of this process students:
Interpret with us an assessment related to career interest areas
For some families, this is the heart of our services.
An effective college search can begin when you can articulate your strengths, personality, and aspirations.

Guide students as they seek to narrow down their choices to the college application list
The college admissions process is so much more than just filling out forms. Going through the motions without a strategy and without an understanding of how to put one’s best foot forward will not bring the desired results.
We help students prepare complete and outstanding applications that will get positively noticed by admissions committees.
We work with students to:
Establish a customized plan for college applications
Create a competitive leadership resume
Prioritize and review applications for accuracy and best presentation of your talents
Identify red flags that may lower chances of acceptance or scholarship
Beyond your coursework, GPA, and standardized test scores, the most important part of your application is your essay. We understand what admissions committees look for in the essay.
We‘ll help you explore topics and develop essays and personal statements that will make you shine. We are there for every step of the way and every detail, right down to proofreading your final drafts.
Explore essay topics that set you apart from the crowd. We:
Teach you how to write for your audience – the admissions or scholarship committee
Review, edit, and proofread your college essays so they do nothing but help showcase you in the best light possible
For many schools, the interview is an important part of the process. There are many factors that can help you conduct a successful interview – we help you every step of the way.
And in fact, we do more than just help you practice; we’ll show you how to research, assess, and approach the interview situation. (Those are skills that will come in handy when you’re job-hunting, too!)
We help students:
Research and prepare for a quality interview
Complete the ever-important practice interview with constructive critique
The search and college application process comes at one of the busiest times of your life – your final years of high school! There are so many conflicting priorities at that time in your life, it is easy to get off track.
With our guidance and your customized plan of action, you’ll find it easy to stay organized and on track in your college search.
