Comprehensive

college guidance

Engage in one-on-one advising sessions and receive tailored guidance to best support your academic and collegiate endeavors.

While school counselors are qualified to guide students to success beyond high school, their large volume of students and pressing responsibilities limit their time. This makes having a personal college coach dedicated to supporting you through the entire admissions process a game-changer.

At Prepory, we focus on a student-centric approach to college admissions counseling that equips students with the resources, knowledge, and personalized guidance they need to craft a competitive application to top schools like Harvard University, Yale University, Amherst College, MIT, Caltech, Duke University, Uc Berkeley, Carnegie Mellon University, and UCLA.

Our students have also received acceptance letters to some of the best colleges and universities in the Chicago area such as the University of Chicago and Northwestern University.

Our comprehensive college counseling program encompasses a wide range of critical topics for each high school grade level such as leadership development, crafting the personal statement, supplemental essays, navigating financial aid, securing impactful letters of recommendation, strategic high school course selection, and beyond.
