Applying to college has never been more complicated or overwhelming. College Ascent is here to help parents and students navigate the process.
Independent Education Consultants (IECs) help students identify schools that will be a great fit financially, academically, and socially. In most cases, the financial advantages far outweigh the cost of hiring an IEC. For my students in the Class of 2020, cumulative merit scholarships totaled over $450k.
College Ascent can help you find the schools that are most likely to offer you a generous financial aid package.
Even if you don’t know what to study, College Ascent can help you focus on programs that keep your options open.
We’ll look for schools with the right sports, clubs, and activities that will create your perfect college experience.
I’m a Certified Independent Education Consultant in the Greater Denver/Boulder area.
My passion for college consulting began while helping my twins navigate the college admissions process. I experienced first-hand the intricacies and complexities of college admissions, as well as the emotional stress for both parents and students that often accompanies planning for higher education.
In the process, I learned that, while incredibly overwhelming, the ascent to higher education is also highly rewarding.
Having up-to-date information is especially important right now as we are just starting to see the impact on university admissions, campus visits, and application deadlines. College Ascent will help you navigate this ever-changing landscape.
As soon as 9th grade you can begin to manage your curriculum, find enrichment opportunities, and start to create a plan to best position yourself for your future application process. By junior year, you will be ready to build a college list and explore your post-secondary options in detail.
Unless you are applying into a specialty field, most schools do not require you to declare a major before second semester sophomore year. If you don’t quite know yet what you want to study, I recommend looking at schools with extensive core requirements which gives you the opportunity to explore your interests while building credits.
ARE YOU READY?
