Just the List 11th or 12th Grades

Need help building or "rounding out" your college list?  We are happy to assist students in this way. Our work begins with meeting the student and getting to know the student's dreams and wishes, understanding the financial situation of the family, reviewing their transcript and test scores. Students are provided a College List Spreadsheet that includes college specific criteria: application deadlines, test score ranges, application type, and financial aid information. 

Inquire about this service. 

New Horizons Transfer Students

Thinking about transfering? There are many reasons that a student might transfer colleges. Perhaps they have changed academic major or encountered a financial situation or realized that their school isn't the right fit. Whatever the reason, we can help. Services include exploring new colleges, updating your resume, writing essays, meeting deadlines, and applying for financial aid. 

Don't stress; we are here to help.
