Why do I need academic advising?

School counselors are often so overwhelmed that many students and parents don’t get the guidance needed for the best high school course selection and college admissions counseling. If you would like some supplemental advice and guidance to help you navigate through high school courses and the college admissions process, our Center Director at your local Education One is ready to help.

We’ll be happy to sit down with you to discuss current grades, help plan future course selections, prepare you for SAT and ACT testing, and answer important questions about the college admissions process. You’ll get straight talk about what it could take to get into your dream college, plus the help you need to increase your chances of getting the “fat envelope” you really want. We’ll also help you evaluate what your “best fit” schools may be, along with some safe choices to ensure college admission. Know where you stand, and make a plan, with help from Education One.

How early should I start?

Now! Academic advising shouldn’t be delayed until the final years of high school, because then it is impossible to build the kind of academic portfolio needed for entrance to top schools. The earlier you start, the better. Course planning should ideally begin no later than 7th grade, to put students on the best track for the kind of high school performance that will make a strong impression on college admissions personnel. This may include AP classes, participation in extracurriculars at school, and special activities in personal hobbies. And parents of very bright younger children should get information on their school district’s gifted and talented programs as early as the 1 st grade!

Is it too late, if I didn’t start early?

Maybe not! Even during the senior year of high school, good academic advising and college counseling can make a difference. Come in for a free consultation to discuss your options and see what we can do to help. You may still be able to take the SAT or ACT, to get your scores and application mailed to a college that is just right for you.
