A Special Message from the CEO
Every admission counselor or expert of any acclaim will have something valuable to impart to you. Something you never thought of. Something you left out that could change the course of your admittance. Something creative, or strategic, or comforting. But not everyone is able to afford the very high cost of traditional one-on-one college consulting. That led us to develop our unique value proposition—delivering all the counseling and brand new admission technology products and information resources at a very affordable cost—because every student needs help today. We are living in a time that is brutally hard on the pre-college student. Expectations are through the roof at our nation's top schools, arts schools, best state schools, and excellent liberal arts colleges. The furious standardized testing does not help; the push towards receiving top grades in all courses—even in those that will never figure in your life's work—is enormous. The emphasis on STEM, even for those students who have no proclivity towards those fields, is turning off young scholars and writers and artists from even trying.
The need for every high school student to appear as a superstar, a global traveler, pundit, or expert on things that take years of study, observation, and emotional intelligence to cultivate—is out of control. So many top students feel overwhelmed and uncertain of their futures (even if they won't talk about it). So many artistic students feel underappreciated. So many struggling students feel lost. The possibility for mistakes along the way—whether in writing your essays, crafting your resumé, course scheduling, testing, deciding on summer options, rehearsing interview techniques, keeping up with scholarship deadlines—are too many to shoulder alone.
But now, you don't need to go it alone. We are here, ready to help. We will work with you at all hours and for as long as it takes for you to win the admittance that will launch your future success—your brand, new life. We will give you the latest technology tools to organize the feverish pace of high school, offer insight into the psychology of admission, show you how to create a multimedia resumé that will blow the competition out of the water, and teach you to craft your unique voice in a way that's compelling to admissions officers. After 30+ years of helping students from all walks of life gain acceptance at their top schools, I know we can help you achieve your dreams too.

How College Admission Central is changing the admission game and giving you the competitive edge
What Has Changed?
When our CEO began in the admission field, over 30 years ago, help simply meant private consulting. ResuMotiv presentations or EssaySuite apps didn't exist (but neither did cell phones). With technological change comes creative opportunity.
We Provide a Total Package
Every tool on College Admission Central builds toward an admission package that sets you above the crowd.
Use a ResuMotiv Presentation for Your Living Narrative
The students who use ResuMotiv presentations give college admission officers an exciting, jump off the screen living narrative – a multimedia resume of their high school careers. They're the ones who get noticed in the long, exhausting admission committee meetings.
Make the Admission Process Effortless
Our exclusive admission technology products de-stress the application process and uniquely map the path to acceptance at the nation’s top colleges. Designed for the way students want to work today: anywhere, any time, on any internet-connected device.
We Help Every One Succeed
Every student is a star to us – the talented or brilliant; the quirky or challenging. Making your story jump off the page of the common app and supplement is what we do best.
It's Going to Be a Great Year!
We're here for you.
