STUDENTS & PARENTS

We work with individual students and families

There are many activities that Counseling-4-College can provide to help your student through high school and during the college application process. Our sincere goal is to personalize these activities into meaningful experiences. 

The first step is a free consultation to determine if Couseling-4-College is right for your family. It is a time to ask questions, design a program, look at a menu of services, and determine a fee schedule.

Many parents ask us, "What colleges have you gotten students admitted to?" Our response is, "We don't get students admitted, they get themselves admitted, and we provide direction."
