A balanced college list is the foundation 

College Kickstart kicks in after students have their initial college lists. It bridges the gap between "colleges I'm thinking about" and "colleges I'm applying to” and streamlines the process for both students and counselors.

With hyper-current data and counselor insights, every college plan stays grounded in reality and optimized for best outcomes.

Students and families take the stress down a notch

Students and families take the stress down a notch

College planning is challenging. Students are flooded with stats, deadlines and high expectations. Even with support from parents and college counselors, there is no avoiding the flood of emotions and angst about their college application decisions.

Students gain more control and confidence tackling the process when all of the data is in one place and they see real-time results for every change unfolding in their plan – admit rates, academics, and the rest. They can make more sense of what's right for them whether they work independently or with a college counselor.
