Each student will have different needs so the first meeting is an initial consultation to develop a student profile.* We offer package and hourly rates for the college application process. Based on the student's profile, a College Advantage advisor will:


  • Assist you in planning your high school courses to meet college admission requirements

  • Establish a timeline for the entire college application process (usually starts freshman year)

  • Prepare a customized list of colleges based on the student’s profile

  • Offer advice on standardized tests including when to take them, which one to take and how to best prepare for the tests

  • Your application essays and academic resume are reviewed for content and then sent to a professional editor  (if applicable)

  • Review and assist with the completion of UC and Common Applications before submittal (online or hard copy)


*Athletes and VPA students will have an earlier timeline with additional requirements.
