Wiser Wisdom: Attend a Webinar

There’s a lot happening right now, and a lot of swirling questions about what this all means. We got you covered. Our targeted, topical webinars will help you navigate the pressing questions and the rapidly changing admissions landscape.

Academic Support and Online Diagnostic Testing

Our expert tutors and counselors are available virtually to meet your students where they are (both literally and figuratively) via Zoom and Skype to provide interactive, online learning opportunities for students:

• Enrichment: curriculum content, keeping material fresh, and advancing studies

• Foundational study and learning skills: reading comprehension, writing skills, and organizational help

• SAT and ACT prep: prep for upcoming exams to encourage a comprehensive understanding of the material

Online Diagnostics: scheduled, proctored SAT and ACT practice tests, administered via Zoom

• Counseling Consultations: help with specific questions about the college application process, charged in one-hour increments

If you're ready to get started, or interested in learning more, you can reach us here or by calling 888-648-9473.

Runway

This past spring, as COVID-19 upended the admissions landscape, Collegewise created Runway.

It's a series of college planning resources, carefully structured to give students and counselors the tips, tools, and timelines they need to reach their goals (and it's free!).
