Host A Virtual “College Info” Seminar For Friends

Are your friends starting to think about (read: get anxious about!) college?  You can host a private virtual college admissions information seminar for your friends or fellow “pandemic pod” parents!  We can tailor our presentation for parents of 8th, 9th, 10th or 11th grade students.

We do not charge for presentations.


With most high schools online/virtual through the spring, students may have less access to their school counselor than usual.

Our team of trained, professional counselors provide personalized guidance to make the college application process more organized and less stressful for high school students and their families.  

We are currently signing contracts with the Class of 2022 and 2023.  Please get in touch if you’re interested in learning more about our services.
