College Counseling Options

Our college advising programs are thoughtful, holistic and personalized based on the unique interests and talents of the students we work with - we've helped budding filmmakers, mathematicians, novelists, computer scientists, and biochemists think through how to explore their interests in high school and beyond.

Students begin with an initial consultation where we review current coursework and discuss course selection for the following year(s). We encourage students to find and pursue activities based on their interests, discuss summer plans, and explore new opportunities. The cost of the initial one-hour meeting is applied to any of our college advising options.

To help students navigate the college advising process, we offer three distinct programs: the Platinum College Advising Program, the Gold College Advising Program, and the Silver College Advising Program.

To sign up for any of our college advising programs, please contact us.

Platinum College Advising for the Classes of 2023, 2024 and 2025

Our Platinum College Advising Program is geared towards students who would like detailed and ongoing support and want to work directly with Ana. It includes more detailed academic advising and coaching along with college advising and essay application support. It includes the initial consultation, up to 30 one-on-one coaching sessions, and our intensive four-day summer application bootcamp.

Gold College Advising for the Classes of 2023, 2024 and 2025

The Gold College Advising Program includes the initial consultation, 15 one-on-one sessions with one of our staff members, and the intensive four day summer application bootcamp. This is our most popular option and works well for students who are organized and motivated, and need guidance and support on creating their best possible application.

Silver College Advising for the Class of 2023

Our Silver College Advising Program is for students who are planning to apply to 3-5 schools and/or may be a recruited athlete, and may not require as much ongoing support. This advising option includes an initial consultation, five one-on-one sessions with a member of our staff, and our intensive four day summer application bootcamp (completed the summer after junior year).

College Application Bootcamp

The Green Ivy College Application Bootcamp is essential for every rising high school senior. Note: For students working with us on the entire college advising process, this workshop is included, and otherwise can be done as a standalone option.

Our bootcamp is a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive program designed to help rising high school seniors navigate the nuts and bolts of the application process. We devote sixteen hours over four days to help students organize their applications to shine a light on their talents, interests, and unique gifts. We review initial college lists, recommendation letters, personal statements, activity lists, and supplemental questions, along with the basic information for the Common Application, Coalition Application and other pertinent applications. Students generally conclude the workshop with a solid foundation for a personal statement, as well as guidance on drafting and editing supplemental and short answer questions.

Each session is limited to 8 students, and meets on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday of the workshop week.

Custom Session Available: Perfect for a small group of friends to work on their applications together. Must all agree to the same dates/times in advance. Please contact our office to schedule.
