Admissions Support

Did you know that there are more than 4,000 colleges and universities in the country? And that most offer over well 100 majors? It’s enough to make your head spin…and not know where to start.

With our extensive knowledge of colleges and universities across the country, we can take your student’s strengths and passions and pair them with available majors and minors to create the best combination of areas of study.

We will launch your student on the greatest path for future career success.

There might be a program in your student’s area of interest that is slightly more specialized to his or her passions and strengths. We will help you find them! Paired with a special interest minor, we can create a flexible and adaptable degree set that will ensure future career success  and “hire-ability.”

Then, we can work with you to narrow down a list of potential colleges based on financial aid, scholarships, study abroad and other academic interests. We also factor in extracurricular experiences and interests such as sports and athletics, art, music, and performing arts. Additionally, we work closely with any IEPs and 504s for students with learning differences when it comes to colleges and majors that fit.

Once we have the list of potential schools, we prepare your student for campus visits, meetings with faculty in their major and discussions with admissions staff.

Additionally, we offer top-notch essay-writing support through our College Liftoff Writing Center, host test-taking seminars packed with ACT/SAT test-taking tips, and help students best-angle their high school course load to make the biggest impact on college admissions.

College Liftoff will take it further to ensure your student is prepared to make the best professional impression possible when it comes to admissions–and beyond! In addition to the above work, we offer all of our clients an interactive Communications 101 Workshop that covers such topics as:

  • How to make the best impression on college admissions staff
  • How to best prepare for scholarship interviews
  • How to prepare for a job interview
  • E-mail etiquette: writing to college professors and employers
  • Phone etiquette: how to make professional-sounding phone calls

Our mission is to launch your teen to success both in school and out–so it’s important that we address these life skills that will not only help them with college admissions, but with job interviews moving forward as well.
