Individualized Sessions

The subsequent sessions are done one-on-one with the student to discuss planning college visits, scheduling standardized testing, researching college websites, preparing college applications etc. Parents may also schedule sessions to discuss additional issues such as finding merit scholarships. Many families prefer to work with College and More, Inc. in the junior and senior years; however, some prefer to begin earlier to do more long-range planning in terms of course selection beginning in the ninth and tenth grades.
