The Guidance Bundle

Initial Retainer Includes: 

  • 2 hours of consultant time 

  • All baseline services (see below)

Services continue as needed, billed each month for hours used beyond retainer. 

Our Guidance Bundle model allows you to choose the level of support that fits your goals and budget. The first meeting, regardless of grade level, requires approximately one hour. From then on, your family may want/need more or less support depending on your personal situation (change of high schools, dual enrollment, number of essays, number of universities, etc.).We will provide guidance and support through your personal webpage and our newsletters so you will have what you need in between meetings.
