With the Right Guidance, You Can Get Accepted into the Colleges of Your Choice!

College admissions doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. As a Certified Educational Planner who keeps up with constantly shifting college admissions requirements, I can help you chart your course to a rewarding college experience!

I’ll Help Create Your Student’s Roadmap to College Success

As a parent, you know that your child has unique needs, dreams and aspirations for her or his college experience and career.

Your student may be a high achiever, homeschooled, have average grades but diverse interests, be a scholarship athlete or be aiming for a musical or artistic career.

I’ve worked with hundreds of families and students since 1995, and know how to create the roadmap that will guide you and your student through high school courses and activities, community involvements, ACT/SAT Test prep, college visits, college applications, and college essays.

I understand what kind of students colleges want: those who have challenged themselves with a rigorous curriculum. So, for example in high school, I may advise that your student starts with a few honors classes and then moves on to AP courses.

Colleges also want students who have tried different things and are well-rounded. See my blog post on that topic.

My Early Bird Comprehensive Services can start as early as ninth grade, to help your student get and stay on-track! Please contact me to discuss your individual situation.

College Admissions Simplified: A Guide for the College-Bound

NEW! College Admissions Simplified: A Guide for the College-Bound

Realizing that not everyone can afford the personalized services of a college consultant, I’ve taken the knowledge gained from working with hundreds of students since 1995 and put it all into an easy-to-read guide for students and parents!

This guide includes:

  • How to find financial aid, including scholarships and grants
  • Clear instructions to guide you through each step of admissions
  • Ideas for writing a winning essay
  • Application strategies, including letters of recommendations and interviews

My book is available on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback formats.

Here’s What Our Clients Say About Us

“I have two older kids, so I’ve been through the college application process before, and it requires a lot of time and effort. Charlotte is working directly with Jacob so he owns the process. Working separately from us has taken a lot of pressure off him and has really helped him mature.”

“It was helpful to work with someone who has such a wide range of knowledge and personal experience with many colleges. We have greatly benefited from Charlotte’s experience and time commitment. No stone was left unturned”
