Sophomore “Get Started Early” Sessions

This is one of the most crucial years of high school. You are setting the stage for college applications and now is the time to exploring colleges and building strong resumes that truly reflect your strengths.



For sophomores, families schedule meetings with the college counselor on an as-needed basis. Sessions are one-hour long. Topics that sophomores frequently meet to discuss are:

  • – Overall assessment – review the student’s full profile and offer feedback and suggestions for academic coursework, standardized testing, and extracurricular activities
  • – Course Planning and discussion about rigor of coursework (whether or not to do IB, how many AP courses are appropriate, how many years of a language should he/she take, etc.)
  • – PSAT / SAT / ACT / SAT Subject Test Planning
  • – Resume building – brainstorming about what makes sense for the individual student, which activities to pursue, how much time to invest in each, etc.
  • – Academic goal-setting & accountability
  • – College list – evaluation of criteria to determine best matches, campus visit suggestions

Cost: $150/ hour
