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 364 different colleges in 39 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.

Test Preparation Classes
Our sessions of 8 week long prep classes in both Easton (Saturday mornings) and Salisbury (Sunday afternoons) are filled and will be ending for 2015. Considering the upcoming changes to the 2016 SAT, and the current lack of testing information for the new test. We have chosen to change our 2016 preparation courses to ones that will prepare students for the ACT. The ACT is accepted by every college in this country and has made no significant changes to its format. Please check with us in January 2016 for our new schedule of classes. Please call at that time, and we will give you up to date information and take your registration over the phone. 410-822-4500.
If you feel you may do better with individual tutoring, just call us to arrange a time at 410-822-4500. .
