ThriveAdmission

At ThriveAdmission, we pride ourselves on taking on a limited number of students and working closely with those students to discover their distinguishing excellence. Our goal is to take the stress out of the college admission experience and infuse some of the joy that is missing in this journey of self discovery. We want every student to end up at a school that best suits them and allows them to thrive. It’s vitally important that students find the best-fit colleges for themselves to avoid the staggering statistics involving transfer and drop-out students. Relying solely on the student’s school guidance counselor can be difficult purely based on the number of students that a counselor oversees. Nationally, the current student to counselor ratios are 476 to one. According to research conducted by the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA), public school students in the U.S, on average, receive a total of 38 minutes of personal college counseling with their guidance counselor over four years.

Our business is a local one (with a national reach) and you will always work directly with its Founder, Katie Thatcher. She’s available to students and parents throughout the application process and views working with families on the college admission experience as a humbling responsibility that she takes on with heartfelt intensity. ThriveAdmission loves helping all students achieve incredible results!

We work with students of all types, but our specialty is helping students who are intrinsically motivated to be their best. ThriveAdmission’s strength is in getting to know an individual’s authentic self, translating that into powerful essays, crafting an application with a cohesive theme, and determining what path will help the student thrive.
