INDIVIDUAL CONSULTATION OPTIONS

The following is a description of various plans of service and the fees associated with each option:

HOURLY IN-PERSON CONSULTATION - College counseling services can be contracted at an hourly rate. This arrangement is most appropriate for students beginning consultation in the late fall of the senior year or others seeking limited contact due to budgetary concerns or other considerations. Hourly consultation does not include access to the consultant (i.e. e-mail, text-messaging, telephone, cell phone) beyond the arranged session times.

HOURLY DISTANCE CONSULTATION - College counseling services can be conducted via e-mail, text messaging, and cell or landline telephone. Clients pre-pay in hourly increments and use time accordingly.

JUNIOR-SENIOR YEAR PLAN - This option is recommended for students in the early months of the junior year. This plan allows for unlimited access (i.e. e-mail, text-messaging, telephone, cell phone) to the college counselor from the beginning of consulting services in the junior year to completion of the college admission process on May 1 of the senior year. The Junior-Senior Year Plan includes regularly scheduled individual meetings, standardized testing recommendations, appropriate coursework and academic suggestions, application essay review, extracurricular activity recommendations, sports/activity recruitment tips, development of a college list, building a resume, and final application review.

SENIOR YEAR PLAN - This option is recommended for students seeking services early in the senior year. This option allows for access (i.e. e-mail, text-messaging, telephone, cell phone) to the college counselor from the beginning of the plan in September to completion of the college application process on May 1. This plan includes regularly scheduled individual meetings, late standardized testing recommendations, application essay review, sports/activity recruitment tips, assistance with the final college list, building the resume, and final application review.

FRESHMAN AND SOPHOMORE YEARS - Students in the ninth and tenth grades are encouraged to arrange a number of meetings to understand the complexities and strategies of the college admission process. It is important to lay the groundwork during these first two years for a successful, good-fit college decision at the end of high school. Freshman and sophomore year college counseling is structured as hourly consultation.
