Elizabeth worked one-on-one with our daughter to assist in the college planning process from recommending colleges that met our goals, to writing college essays, to assisting in finding applicable scholarships to apply to, and to keeping her on pace with deadlines.  My daughter is now happily attending UCSD studying Global Health, and we are all very grateful for all of the assistance that Liz provided.  Thank you!!

College Advising

We help parents and students navigate the college preparation and admission process, ensuring that the best, and most appropriate, academic, extracurricular, and social-emotional learning decisions are made.  We meet students' needs, whether it is a four-year roadmap, essay instruction, or individual coaching. 

The key to a successful process is having a supportive, encouraging, relationship and providing a clear outline of the expectations, which includes comprehensive management of the admission process, year-by-year, and timeline management and deadlines of standardized testing, college applications, and financial aid applications.


Over the course of the high school experience, we meet students regularly in-person and during the coronavirus outbreak via video conferencing to optimize the following:


  • Course Selection & Rigor

  • GPA Maximization 

  • Academic Eligibility: Ivy League, UC’s, and selective top-tier schools

  • SAT/ACT Plans and Strategies

  • Extracurricular Opportunities: academic, leadership, and community service 

  • Summer Enrichment  

  • Gap Year Options (if requested)

  • College Lists: a curated range of safety, target, and reach schools 

  • College Majors

  • College Essays
