Choose your own path. Not every family has the same needs. At CCPrep, you choose how our services can best support you through the application process.
Our one-hour private sessions are tailored to each student by grade level (8-12) and individual needs. Families meet with an educational consultant who helps them develop academic, testing, and activity plans. Discussions about academic coursework, the current admission environment, and tips for planning will give your student a realistic view of college expectations and encourage them to do their personal best. At an initial consultation, we provide a workbook and start-up file kit to help your student keep track of important information they’ll need during the planning process. A College Counseling Consultation is a great way to get your student to think about college and take the first steps towards an organized search and application process.
We recommend students complete at least one College Counseling Consultation each school year to have their questions answered and keep their testing, academic, and activity plans up-to-date.
After an initial annual consultation, we are happy to schedule additional consultations to answer questions that have arisen throughout the year, discuss course selection for next school year, or discuss college choice. Students that want help developing a list of colleges, or choosing a major that aligns with their aptitudes and interests can schedule consultations that focus on Building a College List or Major Selection.
Two sessions recommended. Having a well thought out list of colleges is a key step in the application process. It not only saves time and money but also reduces stress. At the first session, students discover what’s important to them about the college environment. They identify criteria that matters most to them as they consider college options. The Educational Consultant uses this data to research and creates a Preliminary List of Colleges that students receive and begin narrowing down at the second session.
Juniors can register for Building a College List Consultations after completing a College Planning Consultation junior year.
Designed to help students discover their aptitudes (what they are naturally good at), interests (what they enjoy doing), and identify majors that are a match. Through discussion and use of YouScience™, students will identify their strengths and learn how they relate to careers and choice of majors. YouScience™ is an online tool that uses science and algorithms to encourage self-discovery and help students make informed college choices.
Sophomores and juniors can register for a Major Selection Consultation after completing a College Planning Consultation the same school year.
