“Betsy was instrumental in helping our son with every aspect of the college application process. From navigating the common app, to making sure he had well written essays and being prepared to apply for early admission to all his top schools. Daniel went 8 for 8 with acceptances and scholarships offered. We owe many thanks to Betsy for guiding him along the way! ” - H. Thompson

"I just wanted to thank you for all the help you've given Harrison. He is so excited to go to South Carolina. All of this wouldn't have been possible without you going above and beyond. You are really good at what you do!!" - S. Hoover

Partnership with ArborBridge for Test Prep and Tutoring

In today's world, we have learned that students' needs might be different than they were pre-pandemic:

  • More Flexibility - The world is moving, and students need 1:1 schedules that work for them vs. a single roster.

  • Enrichment - The learning differences created by the pandemic requires experts to analyze a students skills and possibly support with enrichment services before test-prep

  • AP tutoring support - Applicants may need more strength on their AP scores in the test-optional environment and require tutoring

  • Customization – Students' skills and goals based on college lists range significantly. There is no one-size-fits-all in the current environment.

In consideration of these changes, we have partnered with ArborBridge, a leading-edge, online standardized test prep company with a sophisticated scoring algorithm to create customized and highly targeted study plans (specific to the needs of each student). Arborbridge is able to efficiently determine what specific areas a student should concentrate on to increase scores. It’s this process that allows 9 out of 10 ArborBridge students to score within the top 5% of all test-takers.

Happy students
