When drafting a college blueprint, academic performance typically takes center stage. In turn, The Academic Pillar of college planning supports academic development and helps students highlight their educational and extra-curricular achievements.
With a focus on educational advancement, we work with families to build a strong resume of academic accomplishments, placing a well-deserved spotlight on your child’s high school success.
The Academic Pillar of college planning is comprised of three categories of services and resources: standardized test prep, high school resume and college selection.
Academic Pillar Categories
Standardized Test Prep
In addition to GPA, standardized test scores play a pivotal role in college acceptance. Colleges view ACT /SAT scores as a metric to quantify the sum total of a student’s knowledge and ability to perform academically. Though testing is a crucial factor in college acceptance, with the right guidance, preparing for these events can be a simple process. And, with our ACT /SAT boot camp, your child can practice for standardized tests in a stress-free environment.
High School Resume
Similar to high-quality careers, high-quality colleges require a strong background of achievement and proven track record of success. Fortunately, with the right tools and direction, building a solid high school resume can be straightforward. With admission essay guides and our college matchmaker, your family can connect with and impress admission officers, placing emphasis on your child’s unique background and academic success.
Understandably, most parents share concerns about whether their child can gain acceptance into the right college. But the more pressing question is, whether a college is the right fit for your child. That’s why we prioritize discovering colleges that meet your family’s needs as well as facilitate the development of your child’s academic and professional goals. Through the coordination of several matchmaking resources, we bridge the distance between your child and right-fit colleges.
