Purcellville, Virginia (PRWEB) August 8, 2007
A new company has just opened its doors, to help area parents and their high school-age children get more organized in planning & preparing to get into their targeted colleges & universities.
After a year of fine-tuning their offerings, building an advanced, interactive website, and identifying & training a stable of experienced College Admissions 'Coaches,' College Vision, LLC, is ready to start working with local area students and their parents.
Founders Mark Stavish & Randy Trombly -- two former AOL executives -- have built a model in which parents & students can have their own personal 'College Admissions Coaches' to help them successfully get through the 'maze' of preparing, applying, and getting accepted into college.
"The truth is," says Stavish, "that it's often hard for teenagers to understand that the choices they make now…are going to have a dramatic effect on them when they're ready to start applying to colleges. Our coaches provide the customized College Planning Assistance that's often missing."
Trombly adds: "Most parents really need to get themselves (and their students) serious about college planning by the 8th or 9th grade! Not only will our coaches help to simplify a very complicated, time-consuming, and often confusing process (and even help fill-out the forms…and meet the deadlines!)…but we'll do so in a way that's both convenient & fully-individualized for each family!"
Adds Stavish: "In addition to our primary focus on Academic preparation, we also have a special interest in helping those who have special talents--like Student-Athletes and Student-Musicians. We can help these students use their special talents to open doors at their targeted top-choice schools…and not be limited to only those schools who've already expressed an interest in recruiting them."
Some of the College Admissions Coaching services that College Vision provides to its client families include: conducting comprehensive Academic Assessments; working with parents to develop specific strategies to motivate each student toward better Time-Management, improved Study Skills, and greater Academic Performance; assisting with SAT & ACT Test-Preparation; providing personalized family Financial Planning; helping to secure Scholarships & Financial Aid; and we even providing 'coaching' suggestions for Parents.
College Vision has Coaching Programs for 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders. And they also have coaching programs for those with other special talents…such as Music.
