One-on-one planning helps students understand how to develop appropriate high school goals by breaking down their ultimate academic goals (their “dream schools”) into shorter-term goals that are achievable and measurable. For upperclassmen, we guide course selection based on each student’s specific interests and abilities, to ensure the maximum fulfillment of future academic prerequisites.
