Throughout high school, we provide step-by-step guidance and support including:
- Course selection and long-term academic planning based on the student’s interests and potential college paths
- Standardized test preparation programs tailored to the student’s needs and current baseline scores
- Building a well-rounded list of extracurricular activities suited to the student’s strengths and passions
- College research calibrated to academic interests and target programs, developing an appropriate college list
- Application strategy and timeline tailored to reach schools, including critical essays and recommendations
- Interview preparation tapping into the student’s personality, interests and accomplishments
- Financial aid and scholarship opportunities matched to family need and merit qualifications
- And much more; no detail is missed in our comprehensive approach
Our college advisors remain actively engaged in motivating and guiding students over the long haul. We are always available as a reliable sounding board to lend perspective, advice and course correction when required. Students know they have someone in their corner who deeply understands their goals and aspirations.
We also work hand-in-hand with parents, siblings, teachers and mentors to incorporate perspectives from all stakeholders who know the student well. Our holistic approach gathers insights from all corners.
Regular check-ins and meetings allow us to keep students on track with their timeline and benchmark goals. We ensure they are taking advantage of the right academic and test prep resources. If we notice any shortfalls, we can work with students early on to get them back on path.
Our coaches are available for essay brainstorming, feedback and refinement so students can present the best version of themselves. We empower students to craft compelling narratives that convey their unique background, experiences and ambitions.
Strategic College Selection and Positioning
With over 4,000 degree granting institutions in the U.S. alone, selecting the right colleges to apply to is incredibly important. Students need guidance aligning their academic interests and aspirations with schools that will be a good fit.
At College Ready, our insider expertise helps streamline the selection process. We guide students toward schools where their profile and goals will resonate most strongly with admission officers. We know how to correctly assess reach versus target versus likely colleges so students avoid disappointment.
Unlike some counseling services that stick to a rigid formula, we take a nuanced approach. We recognize that university admissions are anything but formulaic. A one-size-fits all process does not allow the careful alignment our students benefit from.
Beyond just college selection, we strategically position applicants throughout the process to grab the attention of admission officers:
- Guiding students to highlight extracurricular pursuits, internships and summer programs that demonstrate their interests
- Ensuring recommendation letters and essays provide cohesive narratives reinforcing the student’s strengths
- Packaging application components in a compelling way that makes the student truly stand out
- Accurately conveying how the student is a great match for the institution and field of study
Our insider perspective allows us to calibrate every aspect of the application for maximum appeal factor. We help students put their best foot forward from all angles.

Why Our Students Succeed
Every student who partners with College Ready receives highly individualized guidance calibrated to their needs and goals. However, our students share some common traits that drive their success in the process:
Strong Academic Foundation
While we work with students of all academic profiles, the majority who find admission success have invested time building a strong academic record. This includes challenging themselves with honors, Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and dual enrollment college courses. Maintaining at least a 3.5 GPA provides more college options. Success in core subjects like math, science, English and history is key.
Well-Rounded Activities Resume
Colleges look for students who pursue meaningful extracurricular activities and demonstrate leadership and impact. We advise students to delve deeper into a few activities rather than stretching themselves thin. Quality over quantity holds true. Academic, athletic, creative and community service pursuits all have value if students are truly engaged and accomplished.
Clear Goals and Interests
Students who have devoted time to exploring their interests and defining academic and career goals have an advantage. Colleges value applicants who exhibit focus in their pursuits and can articulate how the institution will help them achieve their aims. We guide students through this reflection and help them convey their objectives.
Maturity, independence, time management and personal accountability are all desired traits in college applicants. Students who take ownership of their college process experience greater success. Our coaches provide guidance, but students must execute with discipline and ownership. This responsibility serves students well in college and beyond.
Embracing the Process
Students who maintain realistic expectations while also keeping an open mind through the admissions cycle ultimately find the best fit. With our experienced advisors guiding the way, students can embrace the journey versus fixating on specific dream schools. There are many paths to an enriching college experience.
