Senior Express Package

This package is for the senior and their family who are starting the College Application Process after junior year. It is similar to the Comprehensive Package but on a much faster timeline. This package included up-to 5 meetings with the student and/or parent(s)/guardian(s) including the In-depth interview with student and family to assess needs as well as the essay and application preparation.

Initial Consultation: Approximately ½ Hour

This first meeting is to give the family an opportunity to determine if College Path Advising is right for them.  The first meeting will involve an introduction of the Independent Educational Consultant (Consultant) working with the family. The Consultant will make a presentation of service options and costs. The Consultant will present the contract for the family to consider.

Second Meeting – In-depth interview with student and family

Approximately 1-2 hours (included in the Junior/Senior Comprehensive Package or Senior Express Package)

After a plan has been selected and the contract signed, a second meeting will be scheduled. The second meeting is an opportunity for the Consultant to get to know the student and family better. Both the parent(s)/guardian(s) and student will be asked to complete a questionnaire at least 24 hours prior to the meeting for the consultant to review. The copies of the student’s unofficial transcript and any test scores (PSAT, SAT, ACT) will be given to the Consultant.

While we are passionate about helping your family through the College Application Process there are a few services College Path Advising DOES NOT provide:

  • Guarantee of placement at any college or university
  • Solicitation or intervention to any college or university
  • Complete applications
  • Write essays

The role of College Path Advising is to provide assistance to students and families in finding colleges that match the student’s interest and navigating the application process with families. The relationship between the family and the Consultant is such that it requires the Consultant, Student, and their Family to participate. Below are the Student and Parent(s)/Guardian(s) Responsibilities are:

  • Schedule Appointments and attend
  • The student is to write the essay themselves
