Scholar's college advising program is individualized & multi-faceted, directed at every element of the college admissions process and tailored to each individual student based upon his/her needs & preferences. Throughout the college application process, our advisory students are assisted in selecting schools, preparing applications & essays, studying for standardized tests, and organizing their senior year in order to ensure timely and thorough completion of all of their applications. All of our advisors are members of the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) and the Western Association for College Admission Counseling (WACAC).
The role of the college advisor is to successfully guide & support his/her students in selecting colleges that are the right fit academically, extracurricularly, and socially. A successful college advisor is able to help each of his/her students find a school that meets his/her needs & preferences while also lending to the development of fundamental organizational, planning, & writing skills. At Scholar, we are proud to see our advisory students matriculate to schools about which they are excited and proud to attend.
The college admissions essay is as crucial to the college application process as a job interview is to the hiring process. Students learn techniques that will help them present their character, experience, and strengths uniquely and effectively.
Students will also be assisted in preparing a student version resume that highlights their leadership positions, extracurricular activities, work experience, and unique interests. Because many students struggle with the organizational aspects of the admissions process, application support meetings will also help students complete and file student and family information forms, prepare recommendation forms, select teachers to provide recommendations, and prepare a schedule for completing supplements and additional application components, such as learning statements, athletic videos and resumes, and art portfolios.
