High school provides students with opportunities to choose academic courses and activities of interest.   Those choices aligned with a preliminary plan for college admissions, and a few years to execute, can add clarity and fun to the process. 

 

Customized to the individual needs of each student, and conducted in-person or through video conferencing, College Primed counseling sessions may include but are not limited to: 

  • Development of a Personalized Action Timeline 

  • Assessment of the student's transcript 

  • Advice on multi-year high school course selections (Honors, AP, IB, DE, & AICE) 

  • Discussion on learning styles and techniques for retention

  • Preparation schedule and recommendations for PSAT testing 

  • Review results of PSAT scores to determine the next test, ACT or SAT or none

  • Time management and professional skills-building 

  • Goal-setting for academic and personal achievements

  • Review extracurricular, volunteering, and enrichment activities

  • Guidance on internships, employment, summer camp/program, and scholarship applications

  • Explore possible majors and careers 

  • Overview of current college admissions requirements and selection criteria 

  • Develop a preliminary list of colleges to research and visit to help define fit
