Creative College Connections

Parents and Students Grades 9-12

Consulting during grades 9 and 10 revolves around planning and laying the foundation for the college search. Students take assessments to build self-awareness and begin to consider future goals.

We meet 3 to 4 times each year to work on:

  • Academic plans
  • Extracurricular development
  • Surveys and assessments to gain better awareness of strengths and interests
  • Standardized testing plan
  • Summer planning
  • Building awareness of the factors and nuances in college admission landscape, including the role of financial aid and scholarships

In Grade 11 consulting progresses to identifying and exploring best college-fits. We consider academic, personal, and financial factors as we build your college list. As you head into Grade 12 we shift to working on college applications, including essay brainstorming and the writing process. We develop an application strategy that works best for you. Then, when decisions are released, you have the support you need to make a good enrollment decision. Throughout the process, you'll benefit from the tidbits of information, insight, and the expertise your consultant has to offer.

Two levels of consulting packages – one comprehensive and one more narrowly targeted - are available to provide support to you and your parents as you navigate the complexity of the college selection and admission process.
