The College Application Process Can be Hard to Navigate

Submitting college applications can be difficult for everyone. However, this challenge may be even greater for first-generation students and students from low-income families, who report a lack of available resources. 

 

At College Approach, our mission is to guide these students through the application process. Our tutors attend highly-ranked universities such as Columbia University, Georgetown University, Brown University, and Northwestern University. In addition to this, our tutors have all scored above the 95th percentile on their standardized testing and have college GPAs above 3.8. Tutors in the program also have prior tutoring experience. This program is entirely non-profit and exists solely for the benefit of high school students. 

 

Some of our volunteers are bilingual and can help students who speak English as a second language. We understand that these students face an array of different challenges when it comes to the college application process. We are here to help.

How Does it Work?

To schedule a free help session with an educational consultant, please use the form above. You can also text us at 609-902-1091. After making an appointment, we will find a time to speak with you and explain how to use The Common Application. Next, we will go over each part of your application and help you with your college essay. While we do not offer SAT tutoring at this time, we can provide you with information about the benchmark scores needed for each university. Similarly, we can guide you through the process of applying for financial aid. 

 

Please note that this program is geared only towards first-generation students and students from low-income families who cannot afford expensive college counselors. We are also happy to work with students who, due to other extenuating circumstances, do not have access to the support and resources they need to successfully apply to college. This latter group may include students with an IEP or 504 Plan who are unable to attend college information sessions at their high schools for health reasons.
