College Planning/Counseling Packages

Our experienced college counselors can help young students create a plan to maximize their high school years or high school seniors perfect their admissions essays and tackle the application process as a whole. We also have specialists on staff who work with transfer students and graduate school applicants, 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 College Planning page. All services can be provided in person or remotely.

College Counseling packages will come with the updated Fiske Guide to Colleges, our very own GE College Application/Deadline Tracker, and all additional supplies/books, as needed.

10 hours – $1,750 (save $250) 
20 hours – $3,300 (save $700) 
30 hours – $4,650 (save $1,350) – 1 free Private Tutoring hour included

The number of hours needed depends entirely 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!
