At My Admissions Sherpa we realize that each student moves through the admissions process in his or her own way.  We meet students where they are and guide them forward, specializing in personal attention.  Our menu of services offers a wide variety of choices from smaller packages that address specific areas of need to larger and more comprehensive packages that cover all aspects of the admissions process.  No worries if one of our packages does not meet your needs.  We can always custom design one especially for you! 


Online learning provides the wonderful option of learning at your own pace wherever and whenever it is convenient.  We have designed an online course that walks families through the entire search and admissions process.  Students and their parents can choose to participate on one of three levels: Level I offers instructional modules and resources that allow students and their parents to self educate so that they know exactly how to get into the college of their choice.  Level II supplements this information with the opportunity to ask questions in online discussions.  Level III further develops the online learning experience by providing up to three hours of one-on-one interaction with Kate or Jen.

The fall of senior year is both an exciting and hectic time for twelfth graders.  Over the years we have seen hundreds of stressed out seniors struggle to balance college visits, SAT testing, college applications, and admissions essays with their existing busy schedules that already include school and activities.  The easiest way to avoid this experience is to get some of this work done over the summer.  We know, we teenager wants to do work over the summer.  But....this time the work is really worth it!  Students who spend one week with us create a list of Good Match schools that meets their unique wants and needs, fill out the Common or Coalition application, write a winning admissions essay, compose an amazing Resume of Activities, and learn how to minimize the number of essays they have to write.  Our Summer Boot Camps meets three hours a day for one week.  Students have homework to complete each night but we promise that it will be worth it in the long run.  We want our students to begin senior year ahead of the curve, feeling confident with their list and their application packet.  Most of all, we want to guide students across the bridge from high school to living as independent, young adults.  See our Summer Boot Camp link above or just sign up:
