The frequency of Skype or face to face visits depends on the student’s current grade level, time of year and need. It is never too late to begin our program. Contact us to determine when the best time would be to begin and which tailored program works best for you and your family.
We have a variety of packages available from hourly to limited, short term programs. The notes below reflect our full program which does not restrict hours.
Seniors – This year – especially the first term -- is critical. It is the most labor intensive of any year prior, no matter when you start our program. We have some type of contact with Seniors every 7 to 10 days to establish and meet deadlines, review essays and monitor progress with the applications.
We begin working with rising Seniors in the summer. By the beginning of the school year much of the process is completed which means earlier submission of the applications.
Juniors – This is the ramp up year. From resume building to course selections and academic progress monitoring, we maintain close contact throughout the year. College research is on-going with students required to discuss their findings at each meeting.
Sophomores – Course selections, academic monitoring, extracurricular and community service activities are recommended. Lists of colleges are developed based on our formal and informal personal inventories and career tests. Students also review their curriculum for the following year. Counselor appointments are flexible but we schedule update meetings throughout the year.
Freshmen – Course selections, study habits, and teacher/student relationship cultivation are discussed. Resume building is discussed at each session. Recommended summer options are researched. Course progress and grade monitoring are on-going.
Elementary - Eighth Grade – Our counselors meet with younger students on an as-needed basis. Our role with you and your child depends on the needs of the family. Each session is as much for you as the parent as it is for your child. Developing the preliminary resume is discussed. Age-appropriate activities are suggested for the school year and summer. For seventh and eighth graders, high school selection, course planning, study skills, and the importance of extracurricular activities and community involvement are discussed.
