Choosing a college…
We are a team of professional, independent counselors serving Maryland, Delaware and beyond in the college selection and admission process. In the 15 years that we have been serving Delmarva, CPC students have gained admission in 367 different colleges in 40 states and the District of Columbia.
The Right College Choice Takes Planning.
It is more than grades and SAT scores… a lot more. Why do some students change colleges or leave never to return? It very well may be that the college they chose, in some way, did not fit them and what they needed.
Size, location, courses, programs, environment, activities, sports… one size does not fit all. There are over 2,500 colleges and universities in this country alone and over the years the process has become more confusing and intimidating for both students and parents.
As experts in the college admission process, we are your student’s personal counselor and college selection coach. Our process begins with our getting to know the student as a person outside of the classroom. We employ personality attitude and interest testing to individualize each student’s search.
Parents understand their needs and have the choice of selecting services. Coordinating college visits, preparing the student for interviews, brainstorming for the all-important essays, assembling applications to meet the varied deadlines, and helping you understand college financial aid are all a part of what we do. We are here as you need us; helping you through every single step or being on-call for help and advice when you need and want it.
Our counselors travel to many colleges throughout the year talking with college admissions. We strive to keep up with the latest college application requirements. Visiting allows us to see the best and lesser attractive attributes of a campus, keep current with new programs/majors, and open up lines of communication with admission counselors. It is as equally important for students and their families to visit schools they are considering attending. Part of our service is to help arrange for those most important visits and interviews.

"The process of preparing for, searching for, and choosing a college was so daunting to us and you made it all so organized, methodical and attainable..."
"We wanted to take a few moments to say thank you for all that you did for our son. Your help has been, quite simply, invaluable. The process of preparing for, searching for, and choosing a college was so daunting to us and you made it all so organized, methodical and attainable - and he was not the easiest candidate! The way you gently,but firmly, kept him moving forward... was so impressive.
