This seminar pays special attention to the unique challenges of international college applications: taking English proficiency exams; applying for financial aid; learning about the holistic US college admissions process; preparing for interviews; and, ultimately, crafting effective applications. Our staff of former admissions officers will show you how international applications are read, and strategies for distinguishing yourself in the competitive US college admissions process.
Other seminars cover everything from compiling the college list and choosing extracurricular activities to preparing the Common Application and writing college application essays.

H&C Education’s college admissions consultants can provide comprehensive or supplemental admissions counseling to your students and their families, assisting with any aspect of students’ high school careers. We ensure that students identify their deepest academic and extracurricular interests early so these can be developed in impressive ways. We provide entrepreneurial and leadership coaching to help students achieve their goals and make a difference beyond the classroom. We design testing schedules to make sure students stay on track and advise on high school course selection, summer activities, and internships as well as helping with writing tasks such as grant and award applications. For students in the second semester of their junior year, we begin the college application process by researching colleges and creating a school list. We continue to guide students through the development of a college application strategy, writing and editing essays, interviewing, deciding where to go, and applying for financial aid.
Parents spend countless hours stressing over their children’s high school success and college applications. We help families navigate these challenging processes with experienced one-on-one guidance from former Ivy League admissions officers and other experienced college admissions consultants. This saves families time and prevents needless stress.
