Congrats! You’ve made it this far! Senioritis is in full swing and you are just months away from graduation. If you haven’t started planning for college, it is CRUNCH TIME! Application deadlines are looming and reality is setting in. Don’t worry, we have a plan.
If you are just beginning your planning journey, we will be starting from square one. You have a baked cake -our job is to turn your end result into a college career that best fits you. We work with students to review and create goals for Senior year curriculum, GPA, and SAT/ACT scores. Students learn how to leverage their “MyCPC” accounts for research, organization, and communication. Students complete self-assessments to understand personality type, learning style, multiple intelligences and key college values and criteria. We use these assessments and academic review to develop a suggested list of majors, individual colleges, as well as a college visit itinerary for the time remaining.
Students develop a college application list, learn about application types, and create an application timeline. Students begin the essay process, using our one-of-a-kind process to help them write the best essays possible. We work with students on interviews, resumes, and to create a plan for scholarship applications. We meet with parents to review best practices in FAFSA filing form and develop a net college cost report unique to each family’s expected contribution, institutional giving, merit aid and four-year graduation rates. Once received we review final package offers with regards to financial aid and merit, make recommendations and answer questions.
*The deadline for regular decision applications is normally between January 1 and February 1, depending on the college.
