College is the first educational choice that most students make for themselves. Our goal is to make each stage of the application process an enjoyable experience. We start with self-assessment to understand who you are and what makes you excited, interested, and unique. Next, we will brainstorm with you about college planning in the high school years: how to choose community service, courses, extracurricular or summer activities that align with your innate strengths and passions. Then we develop a personalized plan focused on college selection, applications, financial considerations, and acceptance.
We believe that there is a “right” college for every student and our goal is to help identify your best fit. We start with understanding your strengths, weaknesses, and goals and then find schools that fit with you. We understand that this process is as much about who you are and where you will fit in as about getting accepted. With your goals and interests in mind, we develop a path towards success and college acceptance. We develop a detailed personal list of colleges that meet your criteria. We include in-depth data about the colleges that best match your goals and your strengths organized by reach, possible, likely, and safety schools.
We work with students at all academic levels. Our goal is to help each student find a college environment that will allow him or her to grow, learn, and thrive. College Bound Mentor works collaboratively and in-depth with you on your college applications to ensure that all pieces of your application communicate a consistent, integrated message reflecting your strengths. We work with you on every aspect of the application package.
We manage the process to make it less stressful and more enjoyable for students and parents.
