Dear Parent -
Since the 1990's, I've watched the college admissions process grow increasingly intimidating for students. In turn, what should be an exciting transition to adulthood for your child may instead be a source of stress and anxiety. But it doesn't have to be.
I say that from experience. I attended Phillips Andover, a prestigious school with a dedicated College Counseling department. For over a year I worked one-on-one with my counselor to think through college options, plan visits, and most importantly—craft a strong application. It was an amazing resource, and one that I assumed all high school students had. Today I'm well aware of just how lucky I was.
There are three key benefits of working with a private admissions counselor:
It has been a journey getting your child to this point in his or her life, and the road ahead will be an exciting one. If you think a private college counselor can help your child find success in the admissions process, I encourage you to keep reading below to learn more about our admissions counseling programs.

This isn't a theoretical program. We take a hands-on and practical approach that focuses on completing key elements of the application process. The end goal is to have your child's admissions package polished and on-time.
Admissions Counseling isn't a one-size-fits-all kind of service. We can definitely help your child with the full process, but if you only want help with specific components of the process, we can build a custom program that addresses your key needs.
We focus on two things. First, ensuring that your child crafts a compelling application that increases his or her odds of admission. Second, ensuring that your child gains admission to a range of schools where he or she can grow and be happy.
Our counselors know the admissions process inside-out, and understand what colleges are looking for in prospective students.
Every member of our team has extensive experience counseling students, and some have been doing so for 2-3 decades.
Our counselors can guide you and your child through challenging decisions, and also help your child communicate what makes him or her unique.
To be effective, a college counseling program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life simpler by bringing the support to you, and making logistics easy:
To provide you access to our elite consulting team, and make logistics easier, all of our college counseling takes place remotely. Your child and the counselor will meet via Skype and on the phone, and will use cloud-based document sharing tools to work collaboratively to build a strong application. This approach enables us to be highly selective in our hiring processes, and gives you access to any member of our team.
Our one-to-one format and innovative approach make scheduling sessions with your counselor easy. Every program is custom designed to meet your family's scheduling needs, and to ensure that all key milestones and deadlines are met on-time. You and your counselor will lay out a calendar that works for everyone, and if you need to add hours for additional support or reschedule a session, you can do so easily.
The goal of our admissions counseling is to help your child navigate the application process in a thoughtful and organized way. We offer comprehensive packages that cover all key stages of the process, as well as shorter packages that enable you to build a custom program. In either format, the areas in which we can provide your child support include:
To guide your child through these key stages we have assembled a staff of admissions experts. The college counseling team includes former Deans and Directors of Admissions at schools like Cornell, the University of Virginia, and Occidental, and college counselors at elite boarding schools like Andover, Groton, Hotchkiss, and Deerfield. They know what works, and have helped thousands of students find success in an increasingly competitive admissions environment.
"We were extremely pleased - with the communication, the flexibility, and really working with us to get results in a tight time period."
"I just wanted to share the happy news with you. [Our daughter] got a 30 on her ACT. We could all not be any happier. I knew from the minute she started working with you she was going to improve. Whatever you did was magic and just what she needed."
"I can't say enough about the impressive results our son achieved in raising his ACT scores as a result of working with StudyPoint. The Program Manager and our tutor were both highly professional and genuinely interested in our son's success throughout the process."
"Our tutor was wonderful. He was very flexible in scheduling, he was calm and encouraging to our son. And, he really had great advice on the whole process. He is a credit to your organization."
