My Action Plan for College

Helping students and families to create a personalized action plan for college.

My Action Plan for College empowers students to design and implement their own "Personalized Action Plan."  We maintain a student-centered focus that effectively addresses the needs of each learner.  Support features include: academic readiness, guidance about course selection, developing a suitable list of prospective colleges, test-preparation sessions, application support for both admissions and financial aid opportunities.  We also offer workshops covering many pertinent educational topics.
