Welcome to Magellan College Counseling!
If you’re a high school student, you are about to embark on a very exciting process, at the end of which, you can choose your path for the next four years of your life.
But that’s the end of the process. There’s a long road between here and there.
There are college fairs and college visits, extra-curricular activities and letters of recommendation along the way. There are many drafts of your brag sheet, your resume, essays that highlight your passions and your interests, and some interview preparation. There is some soul-searching, and there are deadlines.
Like the famous explorer, Magellan College Counseling can help you navigate this path. We work with students and their parents throughout the process to:
- Guide students as they explore college options in search of schools that would be a good place to pursue their education (“fit/match”);
- Help students present the most advantageous college application package, maximizing their chances of earning admission to their top choice college(s);
- Organize the process for both students and parents by task and timeline, minimizing the stress of the process.
Ninth or tenth grade is the perfect time to get started with an independent college counselor. The earlier we start working with you, the more opportunity we have to advise you on your extra-curricular activities and your summers, in addition to helping ensure your academics are on-track.
If you’re the parent of a high school student, you have a special role to play. There’s a happy medium between too hands-on and too laissez-faire. Finding that spot will make the process work better – and go more smoothly – for both you and your child. Magellan can help you with this as well.
We look forward to working with you. Please click on “Contact Us” to get in touch.
