What is an educational consultant?
Purchasing a home is one of the most expensive decisions anyone can make but one of the most important is college. The education, professional affiliations, cultural influences and financial variables of higher education follows a college graduate for a lifetime. Most students turn to their guidance counselor for college planning. After all, high school guidance counselors are extremely informative, well trained to assist our students and one of the most important influencers along the pathway to college. Unfortunately, due to cuts in school budgets our students have very little one-on-one time with their guidance counselors for college planning. According to the American School Counselor Association, the US student-to-school counselor ratio in 2013-2014 was a staggering 491:1. On average, students only meet with their guidance counselor for about two hours total throughout high school and most likely to learn about standardized testing, mental health services and/or academic scheduling. As a result, many high school students are left in the dark to navigate through the overwhelming admissions process. Educational consultants fill this gap while working on college essentials. We meet as often as contracted exclusively for the purpose of college list development, campus visits, goal setting, mock interviewing, college essay planning, extracurricular planning and much more. The rising student will have multiple team members helping them find their right college fit. For a complete list of our services, click here:
