Do you only work with students who want to go to an Ivy League college?
I work with any U.S. student (homeschooled, public, or private) applying to any U.S. selective school or scholarship. While I specialize in Christian homeschool applications, my clients come from all backgrounds and all educational venues. My goal is to help each student craft an incredible application and to find the best college fit – one that meets their academic, spiritual, and emotional needs.
Do you only work with gifted students?
My clients have many different interests and intellectual abilities. I’ve successful mentored students of normal ability as well as those who are twice exceptional or profoundly gifted. I’ve worked with ballerinas and STEM kids, theater and vocal majors, budding politicians, engineers, and pre-med students as well as many others.
How many schools should I apply to in order to maximize my opportunity?
I counsel my clients to apply to a range of schools since the college admissions process has become so very competitive. Usually, applications at eight to ten schools will be sufficient. I will also advise students to apply to a range of schools – a few that will be easy to get into, several where your student falls in their SAT or ACT ranges but are slightly competitive, and then some stretch schools that are ultra competitive.
How do you work?
I work with students from across the U.S. (and expatriate students) via Zoom, email, and phone.
What about rates?
Aiming Higher Consultants begins with a 3-hour minimum, thus I charge you up front for a 3-hour block of time. Then, I just keep track of the time spent by your student (in one-minute increments) and will notify you when you need to add more to your account. It couldn’t be easier!
