Comprehensive College Planning Package

We will start working with students as early as 8th grade and stay with them through graduation. The earlier we engage, the greater impact we can have on achievement, happiness, and college admissions. We work with 8th, 9th, and 10th graders to develop educational plans including course selection, activities, and summer enrichment. During 11th and 12th grades we will develop a college list and complete college applications. We also offer career counseling beyond high school graduation.
