Did you know most public high school students on average only get 38 minutes with their school counselor? That eye-opening statistic inspired us to find a solution to level the playing field of college admissions, so that all students could receive quality guidance for an important life decision.
Our mission is to close the growing guidance gap in US high schools. Consider these alternate, but very real, scenarios:
Students are automatically paired with their own college counselor, someone who will guide them through the entire college process. It starts with helping determine their unique passions and interests. Then it’s everything from choosing the perfect school list to crafting an amazing resume and unbeatable college essay. Oh, and it starts as early as freshman year at some schools.
Students struggle to receive personalized attention. It's not the school counselors' fault — their budgets keep getting slashed while their responsibilities keep increasing. So in reality, their job is just to make sure you get in somewhere, never mind where you’ll actually fit in, grow as a person, and want to spend the next 4 years of your life. Some students never even discuss college until senior year.
We’ve provided millions of students with free guidance content through our blog posts and webinars for over four years — and now we’re bringing free personalized guidance to help every student through the college admissions journey.
If you’re like one of the 10,000+ students we’ve personally worked with, you probably have a long list of questions about the college admissions process and are unsure where to find the right answers. When you sign up for CollegeVine, you get the equivalent of a private school counselor — for free!
