Is your family stressed about the college application process?

 

Are you worried how Covid-19 will affect the process this fall?

 

That’s Where We Come In!

Students receive an average of 38 minutes of one-on-one college counseling during their 4 years in high school.

That’s ONLY thirty eight minutes. Not nearly enough support or guidance to help your teen make such an important decision about their future.

The current student-to-counselor ratio in U.S. public schools is nearly 500 to 1.

The college application process is overwhelming enough, and even when parents have the best of intentions, teens often have a hard time taking their advice without getting defensive, and feeling “nagged” or criticized.

This is why it can be so helpful for teens to have an outside source of support, to inspire and motivate them, and share tools & strategies that will make it easier for them to complete their applications.

That’s why we created:

The Stress Free College Application 2020 Online Coaching Program

Registration begins June 29th and closes July 6th — Limited to 4 students in a group.

This program is a small group online coaching experience that makes the college application process so much easier to manage for seniors.

“I loved being a part of this group. My coach was able to outline the entire timeline for me and made adjustments depending on my situation. She was very organized and answered any questions I had.“
Rachel age 17, High School senior

The program is a great fit for seniors who:

Are ready to stop feeling overwhelmed with the college application process.
Would love to know what to work on each month and have accountability from someone other than mom or dad.
Wish they could find the time to work on their applications and fit it in with their busy schedules.
Are interested in having support from other teens going through the same process.

The group will meet online July through December to create systems that keep your senior organized and on track when it comes to their college applications. 

That way, they can get through the process with as little stress as possible and still have time for an awesome senior year!

Our classes are held online through Zoom meeting, a free app that students can use on any computer or mobile device with an internet connection.

We’ll also have audio & video recordings from each session, so students who miss a class can easily catch up on what we covered.

“Having Aaron in the group meant that I did not have to nag him. I liked the way his coach kept me in the loop. There wasn’t much I felt like I could do on my own because Aaron didn’t always listen to me, so it was really really good to have someone out there besides me helping him.”
