You played a huge role in developing a vision and making it happen
THANK YOU for YOU. You played a huge role in developing a vision and making it happen during my senior year, and your impact is still visible today. I am tremendously grateful for your gift. Tons of love...
Not only has she been our consultant, but Jeanette has also been a godly friend sharing like-minded academic and spiritual perspectives for our children
Homeschooling through high school was one thing, but homeschooling through high school with the aspiration of applying to highly selective colleges was another matter. Fortunately, we have had Jeannette to help us navigate these years. Her wisdom, knowledge, and experience have been indispensable and helped give us the confidence to forge ahead. Prior to our son's senior year, we checked in with her periodically to see if we were on the right track curricular and extracurricular-wise. When the time came to start the college applications, Jeannette was right with us - quickly replying to our myriad of questions, critiquing essays and school forms and pointing out homeschooling nuances which secular colleges might not understand, and helping us stay focused especially when panic set in. This year our son is attending his first-choice college - an Ivy League- and Jeannette is now helping our next child navigate the college application process. We cannot thank Jeannette enough. Not only has she been our consultant, but Jeanette has also been a godly friend sharing like-minded academic and spiritual perspectives for our children.
Helped package my homeschool high school in such a manner that scholarship programs were able to fully appreciate the extent of what I'd done over the past few years - and in the end awarded me over half a million dollars in combined scholarships
I knew that I wanted to attend college, but I also knew that with our financial situation, unless I was able to pay for it all with scholarships, I would be bidding my college hopes goodbye. Aiming Higher was a critical, if not the critical piece of my preparation for the marathon that is college applications. Mrs. Webb helped me figure out how to package my homeschool high school in such a manner that scholarship programs and entrance committees were able to fully appreciate the extent of what I'd done over the past few years - and in the end awarded me over half a million dollars in combined scholarships.
My son was accepted and consequently received a full-ride to both of the military academies to which he applied
I specifically remember the day that I decided to home school our oldest child. I have to admit all sorts of fears flooded my mind. What classes should I make available for my child? How can I best prepare my child for college? It is a daunting task to be the one person solely responsible for a child’s education! Still living in fear but relying upon God’s unending grace, I began teaching my son. When our local home school association hosted a conference for parents of high school students, I immediately signed up. Even though my son was only in the seventh grade at the time, I knew how important it was to have a well-instituted plan before high school began. It was at this conference that I first heard Mrs. Webb speak. Here was a woman who had been in my shoes and was willing to come along side parents and teach us what she had learned over the years. During the conference, Mrs. Webb outlined the types of classes, extracurricular activities, and testing that my child would need to be competitive for enrollment at a challenging university. This information certainly caught my attention since my son had always desired to attend a military academy. With an acceptance rate of approximately ten percent of applicants that apply, we knew that acceptance to a military institution would not come easy. Mrs. Webb looked at my son’s goals, strengths, and abilities and developed a plan to make my son the most compelling applicant possible. Throughout his high school years she continued to evaluate his progress and give priceless direction to help him work towards his goals. When he began the college application process, she helped my son set up his resume properly and gave him advice on writing clear and efficient essays. We just recently were informed that my son was accepted and consequently received a full-ride to both of the military academies to which he applied. He also received a full-ride ROTC scholarship that he could have used if he had not decided to attend a military university. We are so grateful to God for His constant provision and for putting us in touch with Aiming Higher Consultants. Mrs. Webb has walked along side our family each step of the way, and we are so thankful for her professional guidance and direction. She not only provided invaluable advice but also peace for a mother’s heart.
I treasure her advice and wisdom
I love, love, love Jeannette! She is unfailingly calm, cool, and clear amidst my anxiousness. She always speaks right to the heart of my situations, usually providing a solution that I had not even thought of. I also love that Jeannette gets in the "trench" with me. She happily engages with every aspect and detail I present; she is undaunted by the minutia which I bring to the table. It's like having another really close sister, not just a consultant. I treasure her advice and wisdom...and selfishly wish she was my sister so I could consult with her more often.
