Who your child is matters more than where they go to college! 

We believe in finding the right fit for college, a campus where a student will thrive and that the family can afford without major financial life changes.

Our Mission

 

We provide the most efficient and comprehensive services to our clients based on over three decades of college counseling experience, the understanding of the American Higher Education system and the policies and personal knowledge of public and independent high school preparation. Our program is built around an understanding of the admission process and the unique characteristics of universities at all levels of selectivity. As a professional member of IECA, I stress ethics and personal fit to guide students in choosing a college.

  • We believe in finding the right fit for college, a place where a student will thrive and that the family can afford without major financial life changes.

  • We strive to empower families to make informed decisions about the future of their children…an important investment during one’s lifetime.

The first steps of learning and building  upon your family’s dreams and goals are exploring your child’s  talents and academic preparation. You can be assured your child's work will be their own, and the application a true reflection of their preparedness and abilities.

  • The college application process is an opportunity for the family to reflect upon the student’s values and hopes for the future and an chance to learn about themselves.

  • We fully understand that the right environment for college is often the foundation to a productive, meaningful adult life and the continuance of a lifetime of learning.

For first generation college applicants and those new to the American system, the process can seem an onerous task; navigating the overload of information available from your school and the colleges, blog posts,

websites, and the buzz around the neighborhood can seem daunting. SDA can help relieve stress by providing the expertise and the personal touch that your child deserves on this next very important step in their lives.

Ms. Scott provides counseling in all aspects of college application preparation, including how to secure teacher recommendations, transcripts, school profiles and completing essays and short statements.  Along the way, students are given the tools to take ownership in the college search and selection process. 

 

  • We assist students in exploring their strengths and developing the qualities that set them apart. We coach students to live up to their highest potential, both academically and personally, and to become one of a kind in the colleges’ eyes.
