Welcome to Magellan College Counseling!

2014-01-31 11.54.39We help students and families navigate the college search process.

College admission has become stressful and complicated, not just for teenagers, but for their families as well.  Magellan College Counseling helps students and families explore, prepare for and apply to the colleges that fit them academically, socially and emotionally.

Beginning as early as the 9th grade, we help high school students select their classes, find and apply to summer programs, optimize their extra-curricular activities and discover their passions.  All of these factors impact their college applications

Part of the frustration in the college application process is knowing where to start and how to proceed.  Many teens also wait until the last minute to get started, missing opportunities to be admitted to great colleges – sometimes with great scholarships!  We take an organized approach to minimize their stress – and yours. 

Like the famous explorer, Magellan College Counseling can help your family navigate the path to college.  We work with students and their parents throughout the process to:

  1. Guide students as they explore college options in search of schools that would be a good place to pursue their education (“fit/match”);
  2. Help students present the most advantageous college application package, maximizing their chances of earning admission to their top choice college(s);
  3. Organize the process for both students and parents by task and timeline, minimizing stress.
  4. In the fall of the student’s senior year, weekly meetings help us ensure that every detail of their application – essays, teacher recommendations, transcripts, and the applications themselves, are completed and submitted long before the deadlines.

We have workshops, hourly and comprehensive packages.  Click here for more about the services we offer.

We look forward to working with you.  Please visit the “Our Team” page to read more about our advisors, and then click on “Contact Us” to get in touch.
