PrepMatters has helped thousands of students manage the college admissions process. This experience has made us experts in the admissions process and, more importantly, has given us an appreciation for the myriad of successful paths our students have used to plan their futures. We’ve seen how the nuanced decisions families must make depend upon students’ individual strengths and weaknesses. Because of that, we know that effective college planning demands a thorough understanding of each student’s academic history and personal ambitions.
That’s why our educational planning begins with a comprehensive initial assessment. Affording us the opportunity to collect the information essential to the planning process and to engage the family as a fully committed partner, this assessment culminates in a strategic educational plan tailored to the unique needs of the student.
By conducting assessments as early as 9th or 10th grade, our educational planning staff can help to establish a schedule that encourages success throughout high school. Later, we then build upon this initial foundation by expanding into topics like college lists, application guidance, and essay advising.
Make sure to view our college planning calendar for typical milestones.
