Since 2006, our company has provided affordable, Great College Advice to hundreds of students from across the United States and around the world. Our mission is to provide students and families the highest standard of assistance ine the college selection and admissions process. We assist students in finding the college that best fits their abilities, interests, and aspirations. We guide students as they complete their applications, write their essays, and present themselves in the best light throughout the admissions process.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, we have offices in New Jersey and upstate New York. However, our reach is national and international: fully 25% of our clients come from beyond these three states, and another 25% have come from China, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mexico, Belarus, and Oman.
Whether your next educational goal is college, graduate school, or boarding school, we can help you find the right fit–and get in.
We specialize in YOU and your educational journey. We believe that every student should be firmly in charge of their educational future. We provide the tools and guidance for students to make their own decisions about what is important to them as they explore their options, weigh family priorities, and navigate the admissions process.
We don’t have right answers. We don’t have a list of the “right” colleges. Rather, we help students discover the educational alternatives that are right for them. Then we give them the tools plot their course to help and arrive at their chosen educational destination.
Furthermore, we don’t approach this process as a one-size-fits-all solution to college counseling. Each student is different, and each family situation is different. Therefore we carefully customize each student’s program to match the students needs, abilities, and aspirations. Our comprehensive counseling services provide everything a student needs to be successful.
Ultimately, this process is less about winning a particular prize than it is about growing and learning about oneself. Our goal for each student is to create opportunities in which the student will be happy, successful, and (eventually!) prosperous.
Our team of consultants works together to leverage their knowledge and experience to help make the entire admissions process both productive and successful. At the core, we are educators, with experience as classroom teachers, professors, academic advisers, admissions officers, writers, and marketers. We understand what it takes to succeed in the highly-charged, competitive atmosphere of college admissions. At the same time, we share a highly collaborative approach. Within our group, we share ideas, talk about how best to help particular students, and cooperate to ensure that every one of our clients benefits from our collective expertise.
