A Personal Invitation From Dr. Colon 

I’ve been helping families navigate college admissions since the day I realized how little parents and teens know about the process. You are not alone. 

That was 20 years ago. Since then, I’ve worked directly with thousands of students, visited hundreds of colleges across the country, delivered nearly 100 workshops, webinars, and boot camps, and interviewed over 50 college admission experts. 

The success of my students includes acceptances to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Cornell, Brown, Duke, Georgetown, USC, UCLA, Berkeley, Notre Dame, Boston College and many more. Perhaps I’m most proud of the over $15M in scholarships our “campers” have earned just this year!

Through the combination of my experience at elite private colleges and secondary schools AND the wisdom of my amazing students I have learned that teens typically know WHAT they want to write about, they just don’t know HOW to share their story. After reading THOUSANDS of essays, our team knows what success looks like!

If you and your teen are committed to not only dreaming the impossible, but finding a way to make it happen, well then we cannot wait to help you get there! #LetsDoThis
