* A Few Schools Our Students Have Attended

Each year, the number of applicants applying to colleges increases, while the overall percentage of students accepted to schools is decreasing.

So how does ConnectPrep help you differentiate yourself from thousands of applicants?

Our students learn that in addition to grades and test scores the rest of the application needs to shine.

We build your brand that puts your application at the top of the pile.

We understand our students and recommend the best environment for them.

From networking and essays, to internships and hobbies, we highlight who you are as well as the attributes you would bring to each college.

Each student receives a personalized experience that focuses on every single component of their applications, including how to earn scholarships and work through the financial aid process.

Our results speak for themselves as over 95% of our student’s have been accepted to their top ranked colleges.

Our Process 

Step 1

Building a Team

SCHEDULE THE FIRST MEETING

Discuss goals, and establish a Game Plan moving forward with your CP Coach. This session will be focused on our approach and your aspirations. We’ll build a playbook that includes all of the steps needed to achieve your college dreams.

Step 2

It’s Go Time!

PUTTING TOGETHER A GAME PLAN 

Now that a plan is in place we will begin establishing goals and milestones. Our services cover everything from test-prep, essays, to application/financial assistance. Your CP Coach will make sure you have a first rate application when applying to the colleges on your list.

Step 3

Coaching

DISCUSS SPECIFIC APPLICATION STRATEGIES AND BEGIN BUILDING A COLLEGE PORTFOLIO

Our goal is to put you in the best position to succeed. We will discuss your high school curriculum, recommendation letters, work with your school counselors, assess which standardized test (ACT vs SAT) is a better fit and list all of the steps between now and the submission of your application. Your CP Coach will review internship options, key extracurricular activities, as well as Early Decision (ED), Early Application (EA), and Regular Decision (RD) strategies.

Step 4

Putting it ALL Together

FINISH ALL APPLICATION COMPONENTS

Once you complete your standardized tests we make sure you have fantastic letters of recommendation, internships, and worked through the essay requirements where we build your brand. Whether it’s the Common Application, Coalition Application, or any other school requirement we have you covered.

Step 5

Submission

SEND AND CELEBRATE

We make sure that we’ve covered all bases and superior application will be reviewed by the admissions committee. Now we wait for the good news and discuss the different packages being offered by each school.

Getting started is easy! 

Please review our different packages and contact us for more information. We also offer customized packages for our students.
