Welcome to our Admissions Academy

Our admissions academy is designed for families who do not have the time to spend on full suite of services.  These half-day to two-day curricula aim to provide applicants and parents with in-depth knowledge and the various skills they need to succeed in the college admissions process.  We offer three different academy courses, aimed at three different needs.  Our half-day course is designed to help applicants with the skills they need for writing their best college essay.  The full day course is designed to help applicants discover their best colleges and devise an optimal list of colleges to apply to.  The two day course offers in depth workshops for essay writing, interview prep and finding the right college.

Two Day Academy

Description

This is our most comprehensive academy, in which students walk away with a targeted list of schools, a clear idea of what need to get done to complete college applications, and a strong college essay (which we will edit twice as well).

Over the course of two days, students develop the keen sense of college admissions needed to put their best foot forward in the competitive works of college applications.  We spend significant time with each attendee, providing detailed information and feedback on just what they personally need to stand out from other applicants and shine in college admissions.

Students will be provided with an overview of the college application process, so that they gain insight into how the process works, and what they need to do, specifically, to navigate the web of college admissions.  Each student will be provided with guidance on what they need to do to complete their college applications, and how best to get that work done.  Next, students are presented with valuable, detailed information on what college and college readers are looking for in applicants.  The camp presents the best process to implement to develop a thoroughly-considered college list that best matches students with their ideal schools as well as how to go about the process of writing a strong, attention-grabbing college essay.  After gaining this understanding, students will write their college essay, and submit it to Admissions Company before leaving the academy.

Following the 2-day session, Admissions Company will review, edit, and provide feedback on the college essays.  In fact, we’ll review each student’s essay four times, so that you have a final essay to submit.

Curriculum

  • How to Choose the Right College

    The first step in our process is the initial interview.  This takes between 2 and 4 hours with the applicant, and an additional 2 to 4 hours with the applicants’ parents.  We will get to know you, and what makes you tick in order to bring out the best part of you.

  • Draft a List of Colleges

    We will review and analyze the results of the interview to develop an action plan. Depending on when you retain our services (some of our clients start before high school), we will develop an action plan to guide you through your high school year(s).

  • Review of College Application Process

    When competing with tens of thousands of other applicants to gain admission to an elite school, the only distinguishing factor is one’s brand.  We help you develop your own unique brand, nurture it, build it and protect it.  We will guide you every step of the way to ensure that high school is not only productive, but fun!

  • What Are College Admissions Looking For?

    Applying to college requires patience and perseverance.  It also requires the applicant to carefully select a list of colleges to apply to that maximizes the challenge and odds of getting accepted to the best possible colleges.

  • How to Write the Winning Essay

    Throughout high school, it is important to measure one’s performance against the metrics required to gain acceptance into the student’s college of choice.  If your performance is falling behind, then we can help you marshall the necessary resources to regain the competitive edge.

  • How to Conduct the Winning Interview

    The college interview is an art.  It requires talent, training and practice.  At The Admissions Company, we begin this process as early as possible to ensure that by the time the college interview season comes around, you’re fully prepared for the challenge.
