Ready to get started with college planning but don’t know which package is best for you?
Our experienced college counselors can help students perfect their admissions essays and tackle the application process as a whole, as well as help younger students create a plan to maximize their high school years. We also have counselors who specialize in athletic recruitment, the transfer process, and graduate school applications, so our counseling staff will be able to help you reach any of your higher education goals.
For information on the various aspects of the college application process, please visit our Counseling page. All services can be provided in person or remotely.
Counseling packages will come with the updated Fiske Guide to Colleges, our very own GE College Application/Deadline Tracker, and any necessary additional supplies/books, as needed.
We offer three tiers of counselors: Classic, Founder’s Circle, and Founder. Our Counseling packages are offered in 15-, 25-, and 35-hour increments. The number of hours needed depends heavily on three factors:
1. Which parts of the process a student wants help with. We offer a wide range of college planning services and start with some students as early as seventh grade and others as late as senior year. Clearly, the more guidance a student wants, the more hours will be necessary.
2. How many schools a student is applying to, as well as which ones. Some college applications require zero essays while others require as many as twelve, so it's nearly impossible to anticipate the workload without a fairly firm college list in place.
3. How much involvement/guidance you would like. Some families only want us to tell them what needs to be done, and then they'll do it; others want us to oversee the process from start to finish, confirming receipt of every set of test scores and letters of recommendation, read every draft of every essay, et cetera.
Remember, there is no “right” way to tackle this process — it simply depends on what will make it the least stressful and most manageable for you and your family!
