Experience and a carefully developed project planning program applied to college admissions can ease the stress and allow more room to enjoy the actual hear & now - which is those High School years. Starting early is a key to lowering stress as well.
A college counselor can create ease in the relationship between parent and student during the college admissions process. This allows parents and students room to enjoy the high school years without the entire burden of college planning looming overhead. Outsourcing guidance will ensure that your relationship does not circle around college planning "discussions" for the last year before they leave the nest. Our digital platform and regular updates will keep you, as a parent, in the loop and feeling connected to the process.
When working with an admisssions professional, such as Crosby College Coaching, the ability to learn adulting skills & hone executive functioning abilities is exponential - across accountability, goal setting, time management, setting expectations, turning disappointments into successful pivots and the confidence of knowing your own values and strengths.
The "All Access" can start anytime from 8th grade - 10th grade and will carry you through to the end of the college process. This will be the theme of our time together - What makes you, you? Where will you flourish and thrive? What is your authentic narrative? What are your strengths and where can those shine?
