We begin working with students as early as 8th grade to help them develop a strong academic and extracurricular foundation and increase their potential.
Students who receive consistent, thoughtful guidance on how to effectively navigate high school have more successful, enriching high school experiences. This, in turn, makes them more competitive college applicants and provides them the time to formulate compelling, authentic stories for their applications.
Parents whose children begin working with us in 8th grade often say doing so alleviates stress and boosts confidence. Starting early ensures that your child has access to the best possible opportunities.
