I understand how terrifying it can be to have a child with incredible potential and know in the still, small places my soul that my decisions would impact the rest of his life.
I remember waking up in a cold sweat with the questions roaring through my brain.
I knew my choices would affect
- the quality of his high school education
- the college he got into
- the type of job he would be qualified for
- basically the rest of his life
Pretty scary stuff!
As a Youth Development Specialist, I had worked with students for a decade to master personal and leadership skill sets they needed to become capable, contributing citizens. I spent years honing techniques to help them compete for great scholarships.
Then I left my career because my small children needed me. Not only that, I took their education into my own hands. No teachers to handle the tough subjects, no guidance counselor to help chart the course. I could no longer blame the school system if they didn’t get into a great college. And how do you get into a good school, anyway? I began reading, asking questions, praying, and reading some more.
When the time came to face college applications, I marshaled:
- all my experience from my professional years
- my background as a multiple scholarship and award winner
- a writer’s love for a great story
- the determination of a mother with big dreams for her kids
The results were phenomenal!
Aiming Higher Consultants was born when other families saw our success and began asking for college admissions assistance. They wanted to know how to homeschool high school well. They wanted a college advisor.
As a high school planning and college consulting service, I seek to understand the heart of each individual student and help them develop holistically, then effectively tell their story to busy college admissions officers.
