Educational Planning & College Placement
Research conducted by Future Quest indicates that prerequisites for admission to the college of one’s choice consist of an effective design for a secondary education and a timely, persuasive college application. Even with an impressive grade point average, extensive participation in extracurricular activities, and strong SAT scores, students may not be admitted to their desired college. The Future Quest process guides students and parents through the maze of high school planning, the college selection and the application process. In addition, our process provides students with a competitive edge and helps them find a school where they will be both happy and productive.
Our process is divided into two phases; Educational Planning and College Placement. While we recommend both Phase 1 and Phase 2 concurrently, either phase may be contracted independently according to the students’ individual needs.
Phase 1, Educational Planning
After an extensive interview and an analysis of your academic history and educational goals, Future Quest designs a unique educational plan recognizing your strengths, interests, and needs. This plan is constructed to best position you for the college of your choice. (8th, 9th & 10th Grades)
Phase 2, College Placement
Your academic strengths, interests, and financial needs are matched to appropriate colleges. After college visits, students narrow their choices then, our counselors will help you present a polished and coherent application to these schools. (11th & 12th Grades)
