5-Hour College Planning Block

5-Hour College Planning Block

If you feel the Comprehensive College Counseling Plan or the College Essay & Application Plan do not fit your needs or your budget, a 5-Hour College Planning Block may be arranged at your discretion. The 5-Hour College Planning Block is “a la carte”. You can use the hours however you see fit and whenever you’d like to use them. If needed, additional blocks may be added at any point per your request.

Some examples of what a 5-hour block could cover include:

  • Running a career assessment to help identify possible majors and career paths
  • Building a college list
  • Brainstorming ideas and then reviewing essay drafts
  • Working on applications
  • Reviewing scholarship applications and essays

The 5-Hour Block works like a retainer. Hours are deducted for face-to-face college planning meetings, emails, phone calls, research and work completed lasting more than 15 minutes. This approach is most effective with students heading into their senior year who just need help with a few things.
