Senior Crunch Package for College Planning
Our Senior Crunch Package is geared towards students who enter senior year feeling behind and confused about the college planning process.
In three 90 minute sessions, offered via Skype or Zoom, we size up where the student is and where he or she should be going. We discuss the differences in accommodations between high school and college and how to evaluate what support that student will need specifically in college. Once we identify what the student will need for support, we discuss how to evaluate whether a college fits a student's needs, both academically and socially. We show students effective ways to research colleges that could provide a good fit. We discuss the nitty gritty details of how to build your application - how to find teachers who can offer good recommendations, what constitutes a good essay for the Common Application, what type of community service or extracurricular activities the student might pursue, among other relevant topics.
In Session 3, we present a Senior Take Control Plan, which is customized to the student and provides specific guideposts for all necessary steps leading to the successful submission of college applications.
Subsequently, we offer a 30 minute phone/email/Skype or Zoom session to field any additional questions a student may have about the college application process.
We promise to get any lagging seniors back on track and feeling in control once again.
