Services and Fees

The service packages described below are designed to help a student navigate the college search process. We are also happy to tailor the sessions to fit a student's needs.  Additional sessions may be needed depending on the number of applications to be submitted and when the student starts the program.

Many families choose to get an earlier start on the college process by scheduling appointments for a high school freshman or sophomore. That’s great! We recommend 1-2 sessions for freshmen and 2-3 sessions for sophomores (at the single session rate).
