Why Us?

Why choose College Goals to guide your child and you through the critically-important challenge of preparing for and gaining admission to a selective secondary school, college or university?

You will benefit from the collective knowledge, experience, and wisdom gained from professionals who are familiar with every aspect of the admissions process and its significance for personal as well as academic success. While you work with one of us, our team confers regularly about information that can benefit our students.

We have read literally thousands of applications and talked with hundreds of students prior to and during their college careers. WE KNOW what makes a successful college student. Motivation to learn and to contribute to a learning community that ‘fits’ is the key to success — not just motivation to ‘get in’. The right attitude and the right environment provide students with the confidence that is necessary to succeed in college and in life.

Your College Goals consultant understands the goals of selective schools, colleges and universities as they search for the most compelling mix of students for their admitted class. We help our students discover and develop their gifts and strengths, identify schools that fit each student’s abilities and goals, then guide students as they create their applications highlighting that ‘fit’ to the appropriate institutions.

We support our young clients to discover their personal passions and achieve their highest academic and personal goals. College Goals’ students know that their counselor is there for them personally, to cheer and to commiserate, as well as to advise. Our only goal is YOUR child’s success.

She guided us through the whole process, trying never to overwhelm us (because this process is overwhelming, at least for me).  She nudged us along through each step and deadline and helped us make the right decisions.  She is so open and approachable and she made herself accessible to both my daughter and me.
