A Step-By-Step Plan for Confidently Applying to College
Here’s the thing. Applying for college isn’t automatically a straightforward process. It takes planning and intentionality and a commitment to processes that work (on deadlines!). It is often an overwhelming process, but our team believes it doesn’t need to be. How would it feel to take the stress and overwhelm off you (and your parents!) so you can feel fully prepared to apply for college?
Weekly Guidance for College Application Decisions
This isn’t some cliché roadmap we generated a decade ago. You won’t sign up and be left to decipher through what’s important. This crash course provides several modules of training content as well as weekly LIVE Q&A’s with our knowledgeable and committed college admissions counselor, April Maniscalco. This crash course cuts through the noise and gives tangible steps for what’s actually important.
Daily Mental Health Support
Your senior year of high school holds a lot of weight. The weight of expectation, social pressures, and balancing a long list of priorities. This weight often translates into severe stress, anxiety, and even depression. This doesn’t (and SHOULDN’T) have to be the case. With our daily mental health support, seniors can thrive in their school year without emotional distress.
Guided Exercises For Mapping Out Your Unique Path
Everyone’s college path is different. While getting accepted into college is important, finishing college is even more important. By working through our guided identity frameworks, you can be more confident than ever in choosing a college path that will work for you and your goals, ultimately leading to more success.
"Mrs. Maniscalco was my biggest resource throughout the college application process as my high school counselor and I could not have done it without her. She was tremendously helpful in navigating what I was looking for in a university and supported me every step of the way. She always went above and beyond when it came to finding new schools that would be a good match and gave me the tools that I needed to apply and get into my dream school. I am eternally grateful for everything she has done for me and completely recommend her counseling to any high schooler looking to begin their application process."

COURSE MODULE PREVIEW
Module One: Figure Yourself Out
With college applications approaching, it's important to get clear on what you actually want to pursue. What are your goals? What are your skills and interests? Why? These are a few of the questions we unpack so you feel confident in the goals you have for the busy season you'll soon be stepping into.
Knowing your "why" is crucial.
Module Two: Imagine Your Ideal Path
Now that you know your "why", it's time to brainstorm the ideal path you'll take for college. Do you want to go straight to a four-year university? Would you rather transfer from a community college? How do you plan to fund each route? There are many logistics to plan and everyone's college journey looks a little different. Let's figure yours out!
Module Three: Define Your Search
There's so much misleading advice out there about which schools to apply to and how many. No, you shouldn't check every box. No, you shouldn't let the rankings sway your decision for where you apply. No, you shouldn't try to keep up with the Joneses and get into schools just to say you did. Rather, there's a much more thoughtful, wise way to go about your search. We'll guide you through it, and help you feel confident that you have a solid plan.
Module Four: Organize Your Apps Plan
Now that you've answered the tough questions and brainstormed your ideal path, it's time to formulate your official college apps plan. This is where we'll get crystal clear on the steps you'll take to confidently apply to college without all the stress. You'll have a plan to hit deadlines, write an irresistible college essay, and gather the items needed for applications.
Are you feeling overwhelmed by the College Apps process?
No wonder! It's complicated, mysterious, and filled with pressure. We're here to help!
