In today’s ambitious landscape, higher education is no longer an option for students planning to enter the workforce. Earning a college degree plays a pivotal role in securing better job opportunities and even exceeding career goals. But applying to college is easier said than done, because the college admission process requires laser focus and a delicate touch to cut through the competition. From writing a personal statement and preparing for standardized tests to finalizing a college list, high school students need support from an expert team familiar with college admissions.

At Great College Advice® we deliver one-on-one college admissions coaching and mentoring to help students stand out among the growing number of college applicants. Does your high school student need guidance and support throughout the complicated admissions process? Save money with Great College Advice by enrolling in our comprehensive package plans to ensure your student unlocks his or her ultimate potential.

When Should Students Begin the College Admissions Process?

Parents and students can’t overestimate the importance of embarking on the college search as early as freshman or sophomore year. From freshman year to senior year, every step of the way counts. Try to have a solid list of schools you want to apply to by the end of junior year. Before the senior year begins, students should become familiar with the admission process by identifying essential application pieces like the college essay, interviews, letters of recommendation, and required test scores.

While high school students should start the college search as a junior or even earlier, senior year is the most important time in the application process. Getting started in the college admissions process can be daunting and nerve-wracking. The college admissions process–especially for Ivy League colleges–requires that students achieve a level of excellence achieved through hard work and dedication. The Great College Advice college counseling team can help Denver-based families make critical choices that minimize stress and ultimately maximize student performance. For families looking for an extra head start, college application mentoring can begin as early as the 8th grade and continue throughout high school. Great College Advice college admission counseling offers students extra resources to help them envision, develop, and execute a solid plan to secure a spot at a top-ranking school like the University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth College, or Princeton University.

How Can College Admission Coaches Help Students?

On top of maintaining grades, students fret about SAT & ACT scores, extracurricular activities, college essays, and even entrance interviews. Sometimes it feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day to tackle all these activities. The growing pressure to succeed can take a heavy toll on students resulting in high anxiety levels. Some applicants struggle with how to effectively grab the college admission team’s attention.

Great College Advice can help your student develop a suitable action plan, which includes:

  • 12 months of unlimited guidance & support

  • Extracurricular planning and calibration
