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 intensive four-day summer 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 intensive four-day summer college application bootcamp during the summer after junior year.
College Application Bootcamp
The Green Ivy four-day comprehensive 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.
College Application Writing
Personal essays are the heart and soul of an effective college application. In this three-session, one-on-one course, students will draft an essay that reflects their own authentic stories, strengths, and values. The student and coach will review all aspects of the essay writing process, with exercises focused on idea generation, planning, style, organization, and storytelling. Each student will emerge from the course with a working draft of their personal statement, a comprehensive understanding of how to approach supplemental essays and short answer questions, and boosted confidence surrounding the college application process.
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.
