HANDCRAFTED DATA

At CPC we use a state of the art platform which provides student and parents access to testing timelines, college databases, application requirements, a dynamic calendar and essay management tool all in one place with one log in!

MyCPC TOOLS 

DASHBOARD

 “the panel facing the driver of a vehicle or the pilot of an aircraft, containing instruments and controls.”

CPC is the air traffic controller, providing the orderly and expeditious flow of guidance and content.  The student’s job is to use their MyCPC dashboard to control their college planning, fly the plane, gaining confidence to stick the landing! 

  • Easily identified assignments keep the student on track

  • Text conversations improve engagement

  • Simple session scheduling and unlimited access

  • Transparency for parents to ensure their student is on course

TESTING

The only thing your SAT score can tell about you is how well you were able to answer 58 math questions, 52 reading questions, and 44 writing questions and possibly write an essay one Saturday morning during your student's junior year of high school.  Nevertheless, taking a standardized test or deciding on a test-optional path is part of the student’s college planning processes.

 

Keeping track of a student’s testing timeline and providing guidance boosts confidence, and gives parents some breathing space.

 

  • Creating a test timeline

  • Reminders to ensure no deadlines are missed

  • Graphics for clarity on target scores

  • Recommendations on Subject Tests and the optional essay

  • Support in linking digital study tools and creating a study schedule

  • Navigating test-optional opportunities when appropriate

COLLEGES

 We challenge students to think more deeply, beyond the usual variables to reimagine their college experience. The college research process teaches students valuable life skills to leverage resources and seek guidance.   

 

  • CPC kick-starts each student’s research by matching student-centric criteria to quality schools

  • Fresh data, objective analysis, and personal insight drive our college list recommendations and assigned admission probabilities

  • With a single username and login, students access a full library of independent research and unique content.

  • Our college note chatbox provides real-time support as students are researching schools.

  • Guidance on when to take advantage of early application opportunities – and  how to be ready when the time comes

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS

Applications might seem simple at first look but take more time and effort to complete than expected.  CPC reduces the workload by organizing all required details and dates for each student’s college list in one place.  Sure, you can hunt and peck for this information online, but wouldn’t you rather spend that time elsewhere?  

 

  • Application, material, and financial document deadlines by application type 

  • High school curriculum track – for example, how many foreign languages or lab science courses does your dream school recommended?

  • Testing requirements – SAT/ACT, Test-Optional, Test-Flexible, Self-score, Subject Test recommendations

  • Recommendation letter requirements

  • Institutional scholarship opportunities

  • Portfolio and audition requirements

  • ROTC and Service Academy requirements

  • Academic and Non-Academic variables defined by each school’s published Common Data Set

CALENDAR

Using a calendar to keep track of important dates is a life skill.  With so many things going on in a student’s life, it is easy to miss a deadline.  Students can quickly view and add events to their calendar and receive notifications to keep them on track.  

 

  • Standardized test registration deadlines and test dates

  • College planning assignments

  • Test prep assignments

  • Application deadlines

  • Financial Aid document deadlines

  • Application material (test scores; recommendation letter; transcript) deadlines

  • Scholarship deadlines

  • Student personal events such as Campus Visits and Admitted Student Days

ESSAYS & RESUMES

Resumes, Activity Lists, and Essays –  For most students, the college application process is their first experience with developing the life skill of self-marketing.  At CPC, we have a saying, “We don’t make you taller. We help you stand up straighter!”  Our writing resource center provides students guidance and organizational tools to excel. 

 

  • Writing assignments organized by school and topic

  • Resume and activity list feedback 

  • Coaching to develop a compelling message 

  • Unique digital tools to brainstorm for genuine content 

  • Actionable essay feedback from top writing professionals
