college Prep express - summer 2024

We’ll take students from overwhelmed and stressed out to confident and ready to submit applications to their top choice schools that reflect their educational values –
all by the Early Action deadline!
What is college prep EXPRESS? 
  • College Prep Express is a package of customized, targeted 1-on-1 coaching sessions for students and support for their parents designed to empower rising seniors in developing a completed college application they are proud of.

  • The sessions will take place over the summer.

why empower?

We’ve developed this program after observing & supporting many Empower seniors through the college application process. We’ve learned that:

  • Students assume senior year will be easy – but especially if you’re in IB or AP classes and juggling a part-time job, volunteer work, sports practice, or hobbies, it’s truly not

  • Colleges look for senior year grades that indicate a student is having their best year yet – not coasting

  • Students who try to also engage in a rigorous college application process struggle to make it all work


You know that at Empower we are big believers in empowerment, peace, and thoughtfulness, so we’ve thoughtfully curated a program that brings peace to what can be a stressful process. 

We don’t want our students to feel stretched thin next year.


 Instead, we’ve created a nurturing environment this summer to empower them in completing a college application that they feel proud of, so that in their senior year, they can focus on doing their best – and enjoying their final year of high school with all of the fun and exciting events and memories that brings!

Who is this for?

This is for rising seniors who:  

  • Want to go to college

  • Are stressed about the college application process

  • Want to do their best, but not at the expense of their mental health

  • Are willing to do work in between sessions

  • Are excited about the prospect of being done with their college applicant before senior year begins - the only things left to do will be things they need the school’s help with, like obtaining final rec letters & transcripts!

Who is this not for?

This program isn’t ideal for students who:

  • Struggle with completing work in between sessions

The outcome:
  • A finished application ready to submit by early action deadlines - without stress!
  • Increased confidence
  • A plan that your child puts into action with ease & mentor support

College Prep provides a stress-free and personalized approach to the college application process. 

Your child will get:

  • 8 personalized 1:1 College Prep sessions with their assigned coach

  • 2 small group support calls to write answers to supplemental essays in August and September (supplemental essay topics released by colleges August 1st)

  • Email updates to family

  • Text/email access to coach between sessions for quick questions & support

  • Intake assessment to create a customized plan for their success

  • Finalized draft of a college application + essay ready to submit to colleges by the Early Action deadline 

  • ACT/SAT planning and guidance 

(Please note: if your child’s main source of prep will be with us or they have not tested before, we highly recommend purchasing the ACT/SAT Add-On Package of 12 dedicated ACT/SAT sessions, which may be delivered by a different coach than your child’s College Prep coach based on specialty. This is to ensure that we can achieve all of the college application outcomes with the time we have available AND do justice to their test prep!)

Book a call with us! We would be happy to answer your questions and share with you how this program will be transformative for your child.
