Why start in 9th and 10th grade?

Every high school student who aspires to attend college will benefit from PrepWell Academy. It's a one-of-a-kind program that focuses on early preparation of students. This is an unusual strategy today. Most high school counselors begin discussing college admissions with students in 11th and 12th grades. In my opinion, this is too late. Why don’t schools start advising students earlier? Unfortunately, most schools don’t have the personnel, money, or resources to address important college admissions topics in 9th and 10th grade. With these institutional limitations, schools must often advise parents to wait for advice until 11th or 12th grade or seek outside assistance.

Which Plan is best for my child?

Four unique Plans allow your child to match their specific ambition with a corresponding Plan. Pathway is our foundational plan geared for students with average ambition. The three other custom Plans deliver advanced content for students with higher aspirations. Here’s a look at each of the Plans:

Pathway – for high school students who want to attend college, but not necessarily a highly-selective college. They aren’t overly ambitious and don’t necessarily want to compete with their highly-engaged peers. They don’t want to work too hard, but also don’t want to be left behind. They understand that even selective and highly-selective schools expect a lot from applicants these days. Our weekly lessons provide important insights into why this process is important, what steps they should take along the way, and what milestones to put on their calendars. This is one of our most popular plans at $14.95/month (cancel at any time).

Ivy – for motivated high school students who aspire to go to Ivy League or equivalent colleges (e.g. MIT, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Tufts, Duke, public Ivies, etc.). These students care deeply about their future and are willing to take action when it matters most (9th and 10th grade). They are self-starters, mature, and conscientious. They will treat PrepWell Academy as if it was another high school class. The lessons include specialized admissions strategies, tactics, and unconventional methods that will differentiate them from the crowd. This highly-customized membership costs $14.95/month (cancel at any time).

Military – specifically for high school students who aspire to attend a military service academy (e.g. Naval Academy, West Point, Air Force Academy, etc.) or to earn an ROTC scholarship to a traditional college. For these students to be competitive in this process, starting early is critical. These lessons teach students how to build a compelling profile that will catch the eye of military admissions officers. This highly-specialized program costs $14.95/month (cancel at any time).

Athlete – specifically for high school student-athletes who aspire to play sports in college. These students may dream of a full (or partial) athletic scholarship or they may wish to use their athletic skill as leverage to help them get into a college they otherwise wouldn’t get into. I dive into the details of the recruiting process, how and when to contact coaches, highlight films, campus visits, and much more. This highly-tailored program also costs $14.95/month (cancel at any time).

1-on-1 Mentoring

PrepWellers who have been enrolled in our Online Program since freshman or sophomore year will be eligible for my 1-on-1 Mentoring program. This ensures that each student is well-versed in what it takes to be a competitive candidate. By the end of sophomore year, some highly-motivated students and their parents decide they would like to take their preparation to the next level. This is particularly true of students who aspire to attend the more selective colleges and programs and desire a higher level of personal attention and expertise. 

If spots are available, a select group of PrepWellers are welcomed into the 1-on-1 Mentorship program. During our work together, I augment the online lessons with 1:1 coaching where I teach the skills, strategies, and mindset to help each PrepWeller succeed. If you think your freshman or sophomore might want to be considered for the 1-on-1 Mentoring program down the road, enroll them in the Online Program today.
