Accessible & Affordable

Affordable pricing allows schools to offer our  1-1 advising at scale making the high touch support of a private counselor accessible to all students

How It Works



Districts provide access to our platform for their juniors & seniors. Students create accounts and provide information about their goals and mentor preferences.

Students are hand-matched to mentors based on their unique preferences. Students can elect to be matched with mentors based on demographics, major interests, university of attendance, & more.


Students meet with their mentor consistently to complete our post-secondary preparation curriculum. This includes career path exploration, evaluation of college options, essay & application help, and financial  planning support.

Our Students Have Been Accepted to 140+ Universities

Loved working with these counselors!! My counselor was so helpful and even if you don’t know where to start AT ALL by the end of the zoom call she helped you narrow down a list of topics you want to write about. She helped turn my bland essay into something more creative which was just the thing my essay needed! So sweet and so helpful with feedback and how to edit and make your essays better.
