Virtual College Planning - How We Do It
Updated: Oct 12
Over the past several years, we have supported over 200 students from 40 different high schools along the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond, using face-to-face instruction at our office and with video sessions. We have successfully worked with students from MD and DE along with others from Pittsburgh PA, Rapid City, SD, and Beaver Creek, Ohio. What is the secret to our students’ successes?
Frequent Short Sessions – Teenagers are busy and not interested in long discussions or guidance that add work to their day. Therefore, we keep discussions efficient with actionable feedback between frequent conversations. Chats have been in-person at our office or with video. We find that even our local students prefer the efficiency of video.
On-Demand Guidance –We provide real-time text conversations when students are engaged, whether that is in the morning, in between classes, or after dinner. Each student’s MyCPC account hosts all talks so parents can log in and stay informed.
Interactive Sessions – During chats, students are actively working in their MyCPC account vs. listening to lectures. Our active, hands-on approach keeps students engaged and in control.
Asynchronous Learning – Efficient video sessions followed with actionable feedback and bite-size “to-do lists” keep students on track, confident in their progress, and introspectively considering their next steps after high school.
