10th and 11th Grade

While beginning to think about applying to colleges in 10th or 11th grade may seem premature, it is quite the opposite. College applications tell the story of a student's high school years, so it is important to take the time to craft a "story" that will be cohesive, dynamic and an authentic reflection of the student. Crafting that story will take effort and thought, but will pay dividends when the time comes to apply to colleges. Tracy's approach serves to educate, guide, and advise both students and parents in these years leading up to 12th grade. The result: students who are positively positioned to put together personalized applications that capture the attention of Admissions Committees. 

 

10th and 11th Grade Packages Include:

INITIAL MEETING WITH PARENT(S)/GUARDIAN(S)

This meeting takes place on Zoom and is a chance for me to learn more about the student, as well as the parents'/guardians' expectations, questions, concerns, etc as they pertain to the college planning process.

JOINT MEETING WITH STUDENTS AND PARENT(S)/GUARDIAN(S)

This meeting expands on the initial meeting by bringing the student into the conversation. The agenda focuses on introducing the essential elements that will be considered as we start to map out a high school plan and craft their "story": course selection, testing, extracurricular activities, interests, employment, community involvement, and leadership.

MONTHLY CHECK-INS WITH PARENT(S)/GUARDIAN(S)

These check-ins serve as a forum to answer questions, address concerns, share updates, and provide valuable context regarding the student as it pertains to navigating this process. Additional meetings can be scheduled to expand on any areas that need more focus.

 

CHECK-INS WITH STUDENT

The interval for these check-ins will be discussed with parent(s)/guardian(s) at the onset of our work together and will be individualized for each student. It can be expected that the frequency will be higher for 11th graders.

ONGOING SUPPORT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS

This ongoing support is available for both the student and their parent(s)/guardian(s).
