Want to supercharge your college planning experience?

Join us for the following one-on-one intensive services:

College Counseling

A large part of the college planning process (and life in general) has to do with the ability to make good decisions. Our College Counseling program focuses on “considered decision making,” teaching you the skills necessary to make informed, sound decisions that will help you reach your full potential. You will learn to organize, prioritize, research and weigh options and be shown positive ways of coping with life and leadership challenges. Prepare to gain powerful tools you can use the rest of your life!

Individual Project Coaching

With so many qualified candidates in the application pool, how do you get noticed? Develop your individuality! Individual projects are customized to your specific aptitudes and are a great way to showcase your creativity and uniqueness. While exam scores and grades are important, an individual project showcases the qualities that make you an extraordinary candidate.

Want to advance your writing voice and skills in ways that go far beyond what you learn in high school? Sign up for a mentorship in flash nonfiction, the personal essay, or critical thinking and writing. Want to give back to your community? We can get you organized and inspired so you launch that charitable organization. Design a personal website? Our Blue Stars mentors work side-by-side with you to identify and develop a stellar project that will capture the attention of your dream school. We give you the courage and focus to take initiative and create something spectacular.

Summer Program Application Assistance

Summer programs make a major difference along the road to college. Through them, you will more deeply define your core interests and competencies, further developing the uniqueness of your admissions candidacy. Admissions officers appreciate students who use their summers wisely.

Our essay writing mentorship offers you the opportunity to hone your skills in preparation for college applications, empowering you to begin mastering the art of the personal statement prior to formally applying to your dream school.

Through the essay-writing process, you’ll write your way into a spectacular summer program that will expand your mind, diversify your experiences, and heighten your competitiveness. It’s a win-win!
