"Success Happens Where Preparation Meets Opportunity"
Students that decide on either the 15 week SOAR Master Class or the Senior Crash Course, will meet with the consultant to discuss the extensive program requirements.
Students and parents will complete a SOAR Consultation intake form in advance, then students and parents will meet with a coach for a 90 minute interview. During this face-to-face meeting they will review high school transcripts, academic plans, test scores, extracurricular activities and community service/work experience. Goals for the student's college experience and the family's financial goals related to need and merit aid will be discussed.
Throughout the first six weeks students will go through a challenging, innovative program designed to help position students for the college scholarship process. The next remaining weeks students and parents will review and narrow down the suggested scholarships for the best possible match. Students will be responsible for completing the application process. A final review will be completed with the SOAR consultant to ensure the college and scholarship packages are complete.
We work one on one with students across Georgia and the US, especially students who are aiming for admission into a Georgia university. My passion is helping students find, apply and get scholarship and acceptances to colleges that are a good fit for their interests and abilities. As an Independent Educational Consultant, I use an individualized approach to helping students navigate every aspect of the college and scholarship search and selection process.
Our goal for each student is to help him or her find schools where he/she can be happy and thrive academically, socially and emotionally. The college and scholarship search and application process can be both time-consuming and overwhelming unless you have a plan and resources. I reduce the anxiety involved in this process by walking students step-by-step along their path to college.
College Search and Selection
After reviewing the student’s transcripts, interest inventory, and speaking with the family, I present a detailed report of colleges and universities for the best fit.
After reviewing the student’s records and getting to know the family’s goals, I can make recommendations regarding the student’s high school courses and schedule, his school involvement and leadership options, his community service record, his testing schedule and preparation, his summer camps and conferences, and any other “gaps” that may negatively impact admissions to colleges.
College Application Assistance
After the college list is selected and finalized, I enter the student’s profile and selected colleges into their personalized worksheet. This assists with management of tasks, deadline and requirements for each school and the cost of attendance.
Financial Aid and Scholarship Assistance
I familiarize parents about the complicated financial aid process. Also, I manage financial aid deadlines and supply a calendar for personal records. A report will be presented with several scholarship opportunities selected personally for the student.
Unlike some college consultants, I continue working with the family and student even after college acceptances arrive and after high school graduation. Enrolling in freshmen courses at the new college; selecting dorms, meal plans, and new school clubs; and scheduling transfer credits are all new challenges that I can assist with.
