When should I start?
It’s never too early! In general, the college admissions process starts in middle school. The sooner you start building strong fundamental skills and knowledge in preparation for the tougher high school classes, the better – and middle school performance can dictate classes and course placement in high school.
Starting with day one of high school, every single grade influences the college admissions process. Freshman grades influence your GPA just as much as junior year grades. And from freshman year on, students need to enroll in challenging courses and explore extracurricular opportunities in their schools and communities.
Am I too late for college counseling?
Probably not. Unless you’re a senior and application deadlines are next week, we can help. The advice, guidance, and support provided by our local centers is tailored to each student’s unique needs, so we can get started whenever you’re ready.
I have a college counselor at school. Why C2?
School college and guidance counselors are great, and many students get high quality college counseling through their schools – but many high schools just aren’t equipped with enough staff and resources to ensure that all students get comprehensive college admissions counseling. An increasing number of families are turning to private college counselors to supplement school resources and receive the full support they need through this process.
