Basic College Advising for the Class of 2022
Our Basic College Advising Option is for students who are planning to apply to 3-5 schools, may be recruited athletes, and/or may not require much ongoing support. This advising option includes an initial consultation where transcripts, test scores, extracurricular activities and interests are reviewed to develop an initial college application plan. It also includes our four-day Intensive College Application Bootcamp, as well as five one-on-one sessions with a member of our staff to finalize personal statements and supplement questions and organize the overall process. Additional one-on-one sessions may be added as needed for an extra fee.
Comprehensive College Advising for the Classes of 2022, 2023 and 2024
Our Comprehensive College Advising Program is geared towards students who would like ongoing support throughout their sophomore, junior and senior years of high school, and includes detailed academic advising and coaching along with college advising and essay application support. The comprehensive program includes an initial consultation where transcripts, test scores, extracurricular activities and interests are reviewed in order to develop a college admissions plan, as well as up to 40 one-on-one coaching sessions. Students also participate in our four-day Intensive College Application Bootcamp during the summer after junior year.
College Application Jump Start Workshop
The College Application Jump Start Workshop is designed for high school seniors who want help getting started on their college applications. The individualized workshop consists of four comprehensive sessions designed to instill confidence, spark inspiration, and inspire students to write standout college essays. Students meet with a counselor weekly or bi-weekly, and complete work in-between sessions. Our counselors provide students with high-quality instruction and guidance around refining college lists, creating an activity list, writing personal statements, drafting supplemental essays, and effectively planning out their application process. The workshop is tailored to suit each student’s needs and goals.
Intensive College Application Bootcamp
The Green Ivy four-day Intensive College Application Bootcamp is essential for every rising high school senior. Our college admissions bootcamp is a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive program designed to give rising high school seniors the tools to create exceptional college applications. In a relaxed environment, students navigate the nuts and bolts of the application process. Participants learn how to organize their applications and essays in a way that shines a light to their talents, interests, and unique gifts. We help students navigate college lists, recommendation letters, personal statements, and supplemental questions, along with the basic information for the Common Application, UC Application, and Coalition Application.
At Green Ivy, we've spent over two decades successfully working with students on their college applications, and our college counseling bootcamp has been described by previous participants as "both fun and stress-relieving." We offer several four-day bootcamps for rising seniors, and each are limited to six students. The bootcamps tend to fill up quickly. For more information on our work, visit www.greenivyed.com.
