High school allows students 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 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 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
