STEP ONE:

Meet with the student and family.

First, Stacy will meet with the student and the family to ensure it’s the right fit for everyone involved. At this stage, Stacy, the student, and the parents or guardians will sit down together as a group in order to learn desired outcomes and goals during the college admissions process. The initial meeting is meant to outline the college process and expectations while getting acquainted.
