York Prep Offers College Guidance to Students Facing Big Decisions

Share Article

Many college-bound students have to make a choice between two or more educational institutions. A new business, Unigo.com, is making this decision easier by providing students and their parents with insight from current students, college advisors, and financial aid experts. While it sees the value in such a service, York Prep offers its own advice to college-bound seniors.

According to an article in the Chicago Tribune, penned by Steven Rosen, Unigo.com has combined technology and information to provide a valuable service to college-bound students and their parents. Many students feel the pressure to choose the perfect school, but given too many options they may find this responsibility to be more than they can handle. To help, Unigo.com offers insight in the form of interviews with current students, college advisors, and financial aid experts. York Prep understands the significance of this service, noting that the information gained from current college students is invaluable. However, York Prep encourages its students to take a more personal approach.

According to Rosen, the founder of Unigo.com, Jordan Goldman, believes that his company provides the resources that students and their parents need to make an informed decision pertaining to college. From student life to the cost of tuition, the website offers insight on virtually every aspect of the college experience.

Despite Unigo.com’s wealth of resources, York Prep encourages its students to visit college kids whom they know and who attend the schools that they are considering. Ideally, York Prep wants students to interact with alumni who have moved on to the colleges they are considering.

“We at York Prep strongly encourage students to discuss the details of college life with our graduates who attend the colleges in which they are interested,” commented Ronald Stewart, Headmaster at York Prep. “We strongly suggest visits and talking to the students there (again, ideally one of our graduates). We trust that the students’ intuition will give them the answer if they visit and talk to others when faced with this important choice. In our experience, that is the best way students make their final decisions. Our graduates give detailed advice to our students pertaining to how to apply for dorms, which courses to take, etc. Although representatives from the colleges visit York Prep, their advice is normally more general in nature, while individual students really give the answers to extremely specific questions.”

With such specific answers, York Prep is certain that students will gain the information they need to accept the offer of the right school.


York Prep is a unique school based in Manhattan, New York. Founded by Ronald and Jayme Stewart, who are still actively involved in the running of the school, York Prep has been open to students since September of 1969. Today, the school tailors its curriculum and course offerings to the needs and abilities of its students, offering individualized scheduling and placement based upon a student’s proficiency in individual subjects. Furthermore, York Prep offers college guidance in the form of a class taken junior year to encourage the completion of early college applications. In doing so, it allows students the flexibility of more time to consider their collegiate options and choose the school they feel will best meet their academic and professional goals.
