Making the Right High School Transition

At EDvantage College Consulting , we believe in a comprehensive college counseling process that begins as early as possible. This is not to cause anxiety or promote unnecessary mania about college admissions. Rather, it is important for parents to understand that the academic coursework students take in ninth grade will ultimately impact the rest of the high school four year plan. And, the coursework students take in high school is ultimately the most important factor in college admissions. We meet on an hourly basis with freshmen to help draft the high school four year plan, including helping students to identify extra-curricular activities in which they might be involved.

In the EDvantage Freshman Meeting(s), the student and parent(s):
  • Discuss client’s current stage in educational process
  • Design the four year high school course plan
  • Begin discussing needs, desires, concerns, and questions of student
  • Begin discussing needs, desires, concerns, and questions of parent(s)/guardian(s)
  • Review of academic history (grade transcripts, records, current course placement)
  • Plan and evaluate academic and personal goals
  • Discuss how to access most rigorous courses and identify appropriate tutors, if necessary
  • Discuss extracurricular activities including, but not limited to: athletics, volunteer service, the arts, & unique personal involvement outside of the classroom
  • Make recommendations for various summer programs and opportunities for enrichment or remediation
