The landscape of college admission is changing. Universities are looking for students who will bring something NEW to their programs. At Portfolio College Counseling we go beyond documenting final pieces of art. Your portfolio will demonstrate your ideas as an artist from conception to completion. This style of whole process thinking is the newest trend in preparing college portfolios. Curious about what other industry-leading knowledge we have?
Finding the right college counselor is the key step in a successful college planning process. To help decide whether our services are the best path forward for students, we offer a 30-minute, complimentary phone meeting to introduce ourselves, get to know you and explain our process. Afterward, we’ll prepare a written proposal to outline our plan for working with you, that includes a suggested timeline and associated fees. Each plan for counseling is customized, based on the student’s abilities, skills and educational objectives.
