5 WEEK ONLINE COLLEGE DISCOVERY COURSE
75-MINUTE WEEKLY SESSIONS
Ready to help your student take the big leap to college? (Maybe not - we get it. And we're here to help.)
In these 5 weeks, we'll teach your student how to:
APPLY FOR COLLEGE
Admissions Academy demystifies the college admissions process with lessons on navigating key platforms like Common App, and creating and refining crucial elements of the application process, such as developing a student resume and exploring leadership roles.
BUILD A WINNING RESUME
Students will set actionable goals to enhance the resume they will create in the course to carefully reflect their current experiences and develop new ones. They’ll discover creative strategies to show evidence of students’ commitments to their chosen field or interests.
FIND THE RIGHT-FIT MAJOR
Help your child wave goodbye to uncertainty and find the right major and/or career! With personality testing and student-led research on majors and prospective career paths, students are introduced to a wide range of possibilities that are right for them.
FIND THE RIGHT-FIT COLLEGE
Admissions Academy helps students discover how competitive they are at a particular college, how to build college lists and optimize college visits by asking all the right questions. Students will also have a chance to chat face-to-face with a guest speaker - a college admissions rep from a top university.
DISCOVER SCHOLARSHIP OPTIONS
Students will receive extensive scholarship lists to not only find the right college, but make sure the right college has the right price tag.
"We want to sincerely thank you, Katie, for your guidance, knowledge, and advice along this long and tedious process. Our daughter learned so much. We are 100% confident that thanks to all your work she will be fully prepared to obtain support and aid from the schools she will then choose.”
We keep class sizes small to give your student the care and attention they need. We are offering two sessions this semester.
Spots are extremely limited
GROUP SESSIONS INCLUDE
NATIONAL NETWORK OF PEERS
Admissions Academy promotes personal growth and provides a national network of peers. Students not only have the opportunity to discover new colleges, but they will have a chance to share and gain insights and cultural perspectives.
WEEKLY COACHING FROM HOME
& WATCH IT AGAIN
All video sessions are held LIVE online. Students call in to the interactive classroom from the comfort of home. Sessions are recorded and distributed so families can download the course and watch it again!
Learn first-hand from guest speakers – an admissions representative from a top university who will share what it takes to get into a highly selective institution and a recent high school graduate who share insights about the college-search process.
DIRECT SUPPORT, ACTIONABLE TASKS AND PERSONALIZED FEEDBACK
The average U.S. high school college counselor to student ratio is 464 to 1. Counselors are amazing resources but do not have the time to get to know and assist each student with specific tasks. This practical course provides small group college counseling and ensures proper execution of crucial aspects in the admissions and application process. Under the guidance of an expert college consultant, students will receive the facts and strategies they need to get into the right-fit college.
There is NO GPA requirement!
Your child does NOT have to be a straight-A student to succeed in college apps.
If your sophomore or junior is motivated and has a desire to make a change, this is the course for them.
We will assess where they are and where they need to be.
