Spark Admissions offers comprehensive college preparation and application packages for students at any point in the college admissions process. Most families choose the comprehensive option because it provides a level of support that allows students to maximize their admissions potential.
We also understand some families prefer guidance on one or more specific aspects of the college process. For that reason, we also provide a selection of à la carte admissions consulting services. These services are included in our comprehensive packages, but you can also purchase them on their own.
With the Student Assessment package, we provide a thorough review of your child’s academic and extracurricular profile relative to his or her college admissions goals.
We study transcripts, test scores (if applicable), extracurricular activities, and several other measures. We then identify where your student shines, highlight weaknesses to improve, and offer suggestions to help your student become a more competitive applicant.
Developing an appropriate college list is one of the most important steps in the college admissions process.
We begin by learning about your student’s college preferences and reviewing his or her academic profile and resume. In addition, we consider your family’s college admissions goals for your child.
We then consider his or her choice of major and extracurricular interests, along with each school’s individual culture and personality, to create a college list comprising schools that are an excellent individual fit.
Next, we categorize those schools into a tailored, balanced list and meet with you to discuss and answer questions.
Finally, we provide suggestions for how to compare and contrast schools to help your student understand which schools are the best fit.
Our Interview Preparation package allows your student to feel confident and prepared to excel during independent school or college interviews, an important component in the admission process.
Through mock interviewing and in-depth feedback, students learn how to prepare for a college interview, what admissions interviewers value and how to improve presentation skills. Spark Admissions consultants are all experienced interviewers at top colleges and universities.
We help students understand what being deferred or waitlisted means and how to maximize their chances of admission.
We analyze your student’s application materials and identify ways to reposition moving forward. Then, we help craft the perfect letter to admissions officers to signal your student’s continued interest in attending that school and to explain why he or she should be accepted.
From application and essay packages to comprehensive consulting, we offer a variety of solutions to fit your needs.
Focused brainstorming, outlining, editing and critical analysis
Hourly packages for support in every step of the applications process
Personalized guidance throughout high school’s final year
