Learn more about how we do what we do.
College Planning and Application Support
We help students research college options, complete applications, and adhere to deadlines. We host visits with colleges and universities from across the country, offering our scholars one-on-one time with admissions officers.
Counseling, Tutoring, and Mentoring
We pair students with mentors from the Chicagoland area who are experienced in the college application process. We also provide access to tutoring sessions through A+ Tutoring Services, Village Tutors, Nurturing Wisdom, and counselors at College Bound Consulting.
Interviewing, Onsite, and Acceptances
Through our partnership with Chicago Scholars, our students gain access to Chicago Scholars’ resources and events, such as the Scholars College Fair, First Look Career Conference and Fair, and the Annual Onsite Admissions Forum.
Financial Aid and Scholarship Support
We assist students in completing the Free Application for Financial Aid (FAFSA) for federal and state grants as well as private scholarship applications.
College Decisions and Success Planning
We assist students in finalizing financial aid appeals and evaluating college decisions. Summer workshops are available to prepare students for the academic rigor of university and develop leadership skills.
Internships, College, and Beyond
Even after acceptances and matriculations, we support our students to ensure a successful transition to college. We work with local businesses to secure internships and offer career mentoring.
