As we move into the back-to-school transition, CPC is offering Seniors support with their college applications in two different modes: one-on-one virtually or on-site small groups while social distancing. We aim to reduce stress for parents and students by having a plan to complete the following tasks well and in time for early applications.
College List – Balanced for fit, admission and probable cost of attendance
Resumes – Prime the pump for optimal academic and other recommendation letters
Activity Lists - Crafted to showcase each student’s unique traits that forecast college success
Common and Coalition Applications – Accounts created and data entry complete
Application Types – Optimized for early admission opportunities and reducing wasted resources
Standardized Test Review – Are you done, need more gas in the tank, or is test-optional your new best friend?
Financial Documents (FAFSA/CSS Profile) – Identified and estimated
Essays – Drafts written, professional writer feedback and deadlines organized
Deadline Calendar – Application, Materials, Scholarships, Financial Documents
Extras – Interviews, Demonstrated Interest, Campus Visits
One-on-one video chats-
These are face-to-face virtual sessions for directed, flexible times if your student is physically in school this Fall or long distance.
Twelve (12) 30-minute chat sessions bi-weekly to keep the ball rolling
In-person at our Easton office for small group sessions- safely socially distancing or PODing up. Student individual work stations are each 6' apart (if not PODing up) and they will enter and exit CPC separately each day. We will follow CDC and school safety guidelines.
Scheduled to coincide with Seniors' asynchronous (offline) learning day.
Morning or afternoon sessions every Wednesday
Eight (8) 90-minute small group sessions
Sessions begin Sept. 9
Ready to Roll Day 1 - Students hit the ground running thanks to summer pre-work
Teenager hours – We optimize teenage schedules based on their fall online, hybrid or in-person school schedule
No rest for the wicked – Students are required to complete work at home to prepare for the next round of discussions
Variety – We shake it up, no boring lectures at CPC. Collaboration, 1:1 discussions and private time to reflect and write keep the ball moving down the field
Completion – With small groups and 1:1 sessions, there is no hiding!
