About Collegewise San Antonio
In 2016, we brought our counseling expertise to San Antonio. Since then, Collegewise San Antonio has helped students submit more than 150 applications, and we’re just getting started. During the summer, we host application boot camps and invite all our seniors to get together and spend the day with each other. They help each other, laugh with each other, get a ton of work done, and realize they are all going through the same thing.
If they didn't know each other before, a lot of Collegewise San Antonio students become friends by the time they are done with their applications. We think that’s a pretty great way to make it through the admissions process.

What are people saying about Collegewise San Antonio?
I loved Collegewise! Through Collegewise, I found amazing colleges that I never would have looked at otherwise. I was done with all of my applications by the start of senior year, and it felt incredible.
My parents and I didn’t know a single thing about college and the application process before Collegewise, so knowing that I could always rely on Collegewise when I had a question or problem about college apps took a lot of pressure off my back during those stressful times.

I had no intention of using a private college counselor for anything other than help with the essay. But I quickly saw how helpful it would be to take myself out of the process as much as possible and let my son do the work himself with Collegewise’s guidance. It was so worth the expense!
Susan Segal, Parent of Benjamin Switzer
Collegewise took the worry and stress out of an overwhelming college application process and provided our daughter with a high level of professional guidance. Darcy was an incredible coach for our daughter! Her insights and recommendations were honest and spot-on. Darcy made us feel that our daughter was genuinely cared about, unique, and special.

Collegewise has been extremely helpful. It was our first experience with a “professional college advising service,” and I have to say it was a very nice experience. It took a lot of stress away from the family as a whole and kept my child on track.

The Collegewise program was such a stress reliever and motivator, and what senior doesn’t want that?
