PrepWell's Approach to College Admissions Prep

Early Engagement

Most students begin the college admissions process far too late in the game. Our program starts in 9th and 10th-grade - when it matters most. This is a game-changer.

High-Performance Habits

My weekly videos teach discipline, study habits, self-awareness, and unconventional strategies and tactics that lead to world-class achievement.


We make sure your child (and you) don't miss any big deadlines. We know what your child should be accomplishing and when they should start.

Whole-Student Focus

Our curriculum goes beyond college admissions. We integrate real-world skills such as manual literacy, social media management, self-advocacy, entrepreneurship, email etiquette, etc.


My weekly lessons are informed by a wide-range of experiences: Div I athletics, Yale and Harvard Business School, Goldman Sachs, Navy SEAL, entrepreneur, firefighter, college admissions expert, husband and father of four children.
