College Applications & Admissions
A well-planned college list and carefully developed college application can make all the difference in college admissions outcomes. We realize that the college application process can be a stressful time for both students and families. Therefore, we follow our proven methods to calmly and supportively guide students and their families through the application process, while sharing key insights into each aspect of the process.
We recommend starting as early as possible in the junior year because there is a lot that can be done during that year, which will reduce the pressure on the summer and fall of senior year.
Regardless of your academic achievement or extracurricular involvement, Capstone counselors are happy to help you navigate the college admissions process and find the right college for you. You don't have to have an A or B grade average to find a great college where you'll fit in and excel. If you have concerns that your high school GPA or extracurricular involvement may be too low, please reach out through our free consultation form so we can answer your questions about how we can help you make progress towards your college goals.
We provide students with guidance on every aspect of the application process:
- College list development
- Demonstrating interest
- Test planning and preparation strategies
- Letters of recommendation
- The résumé
- Application essays and other writing sections
- Financial aid strategies
- Interview preparation
