Educational Planning

Educate. Equip. Empower.


We educate students and families about what it takes to navigate K-12 education, admissions processes, and college success by guiding them through a personalized strategy, staying ahead of education and admissions trends, and providing big-picture perspective with a life-long view so that…


  • You achieve a sense of control
  • You confidently executive a plan with intentionality and clarity; and
  • Together, we optimize outcomes


Our program works through all aspects of high school planning and directs students through the college admissions process with focus.

We know that effective educational planning demands a thorough review of each student’s academic history and ambitions. PrepMatters unburdens the process, helping students navigate decisions about their own education through individualized, trusted guidance. We help students as they come to understand their potential and reach their goals.

Our work together begins with a counseling assessment, an initial two-part meeting that allows for both the gathering of essential information and the delivery of an individualized action plan. Our professional expertise drives the process as we engage the family as fully committed partners. We build upon this foundation by addressing important topics, such as course selection, standardized tests, extracurricular activities, summer programs, school lists, college visits, application guidance and essay advising. In guiding students through this reflective process, PrepMatters challenges students to recognize their strengths and construct an effective narrative.
