College Coaching

Why do we offer college coaching?

  • Figuring out what to do after high school is a major decision for students.
  • Choosing and applying to colleges can be stressful and overwhelming.

  • Our focus is nurturing, holistic, and student-centered.
  • We know about the available opportunities for students of all academic levels and interests.
  • We work with each student to create and achieve individualized college goals.
  • Our process aims to reduce anxiety and stress.
  • We motivate students to take the lead in their college search process.
