Ready to start planning for college? It’s never too early.

Making the transition from middle school to high school is a big change for students and their families. The coursework in both the middle school and high school years lays a firm foundation for college admissions. Meeting minimal criteria for college may make a student eligible but it will not make a student competitive. Find out how Doing College can help ensure your academic preparation keeps open all your educational options.

“Elizabeth, as a family, we are so grateful to you for helping Henry! I am completely convinced that there is no way that he would have ever ended up at the University of Miami if it had not been for you. To start, none of us had ever heard of it, and then there was the distance…but in the end, this school has been nothing short of fantastic and turned out to be the best fit EVER.

It was a great suggestion and clearly you heard everything that he said he wanted in a campus. He is really thriving and has already decided to stay an extra year so that he can complete his Master’s at the end of 5 years. He made it into the amazing Miami Commitment Program and has a wonderful part time job and terrific advisors in about every category one could think of.

Thank you again for everything! Because of you Henry is thriving at college in ways that Mike and I could have never imagined.”
