What is included when I work with Collegewise?The specifics of each program depend on your needs, but each counseling program offers the following:
Are there options for tutoring and test prep?
Yes, you are able to take advantage of discounted rates on academic tutoring and small group learning options. Learn more here.
When is the best time to start a college counseling program?
Through 22 years of experience, Collegewise has found that the most beneficial time for most students to begin the counseling process is during sophomore year of high school. Ultimately, the best time to start a college counseling program is when you begin to have questions or concerns that you’d like to have addressed by a professional. We begin working with students as early as second semester of eighth grade, so if you’re thinking about hiring a college counselor and your student is an eighth grader or older, you’re in the right place!
What is your success rate?
At Collegewise, we define a successful college match in three parts:
Collegewise counselors work with each of their students to conduct a thoughtful college search and to build a college list that takes into account the criteria listed above. The results of this process are clear:
Not convinced? Check out our testimonials, which you’ll find below. You’ll find that our students leave for college more confident and prepared than when they started their college search process, and their younger siblings (and friends) are often next in line to work with our counselors.
How will I be matched with my best-fit Collegewise counselor?
We know our counselors: their strengths, personalities, counseling styles, and experience. Getting to know your student is equally important, as we believe the fit between counselor and student is crucial to making this journey successful. While we will have a team of counselors dedicated to helping NVIDIA families throughout the admissions process, should a family want to enroll into one of our full programs with another counselor, parents will have the opportunity to meet with a Program Advisor who will spend time getting to know the family and identify which counselor would be the best fit moving forward.
This all sounds great, but I have more questions. Who should I reach out to?
You have a dedicated email to contact at any time:
Collegewise, for me, was much more than test-prep and college counseling. After freshman year, [my college counselor and tutor] inspired me to be a more engaged member of my community, and for all that I thank you. I truly believe, without a doubt in my mind, that Collegewise played an integral role in getting me to where I am today. I hope that Collegewise continues to inspire students as it did me. Thank you so much!

One of my daughters says that she has never had a better math teacher in her life, and my other daughter comes out of Skype tutoring sessions for her least favorite subject saying, “That was so much fun!” Thank you for all of the support for our whole family.
Collegewise was perfect for the help I needed with my applications! My essays were always sent back to me within a timely manner, and I never felt like I was forgotten about. I also loved that I was encouraged to never submit an essay that I was not proud of or happy with. I had a great college application process.
