High School and College Planning

We understand that navigating the high school and college planning process is complicated and can be overwhelming.

The professionals at Laura George Consulting guide families throughout the journey to college, providing customized assistance to meet each student’s unique goals and needs. 

Our most commonly requested services include:
 

  • Maximizing the High School Experience
    This is an excellent option for families who would like assistance with four-year academic planning, guidance on extracurricular opportunities, and understanding important timelines in the college planning process.

     

  • Exploring Major and Career Options
    Most people choose a major based on interest areas and fields that feel familiar. Our process not only incorporates interests, but also focuses on aptitudes and how those personal strengths align with potential majors and careers.

     

  • College Search and Selection
    Choosing best-fit colleges/universities from over 4.000 options in the U.S. (and many more abroad) can be a daunting process. Our college selection process helps students to identify and research schools that match each unique individual academically, socially, and financially, among many other factors.

     

  • Scholarship Guidance
    We help students and families identify legitimate local, national, and special-interest scholarships that match each student’s unique background and goals. We do the searching so students can focus on the applications.

Please contact us for more information about these services or other high school/college planning topics of interest.
