Premier College Prep Consulting provides coaching for high school students and their parents on preparing for college throughout high school, the college application process, financial aid, scholarship searches, interview preparation, and the final college selection.  Our goal is to assist high school students, along with their parents, by providing focused guidance on the college admissions process.

  • Career Planning - includes aptitude testing, review of results, and career coaching

  • Interview Skills - Coaching on how to be a strong interview candidate and practice interview questions

  • College Application Personal Statement - includes strategies on how to write the essay, brainstorming topics, and edits to one personal statement

Schedule your free consultation to discuss your needs to determine if one of these plans are the best fit for your.  We have limited space, so don't wait!
