ELITE PLAN

This plan consists of a maximum of 25 sessions and can be custom built and altered as needed throughout the life of the plan.  This package is recommended for families that want total support throughout high school.  The plan would consist of all services offered, with additional support throughout the earlier years in high school to better prepare a student for college admissions.  Support would also be provided with high school course selection and building a strong student resume early in the high school years. 

 

Parents may also select this package if they are interested in having both the academic and prospective college student-athlete plans.   A combination of the two comprehensive plans allows the client to explore both colleges based on interest and academic fit, along with the colleges where the client could potentially pursue a position on an athletic team.
