Senior Year Only

For those students who come to us after June 15 of the year before they expect to enter university, we compress our full-service plan into an intensive year of guided university search and application support.

    Students enrolled in our Senior Year Only program receive the benefits of intensive support and access that our regular comprehensive students receive during the application period itself, but without the more extensive and longer term counseling of our fully comprehensive program. During the intense application period between July and January, we guide, encourage and motivate our seniors and their parents through the complex, confusing and often stressful process of choosing colleges and universities, and preparing the applications for up to ten appropriate institutions.

    • Together with the student, we develop a realistic personal admissions plan that will still include advice on testing and college visits.
    • We provide close counsel on obtaining excellent and important recommendations, and on preparing dynamic application essays and resumes.
    • We assist the student in demonstrating interest in and developing appropriate contacts with the institutions to which s/he will apply.
    • When admissions decisions are announced, the student’s counselor will help the family evaluate the best opportunities, to assist the student in choosing wisely.

    Having had an older daughter who already applied to university, I thought I knew quite a bit about applying to universities and was astonished at how much insight you were able to provide.
