Our Clients Say
I learned that by putting in real time and effort, I can actually create content that I am proud of.
SSP Participant Parent
I think he was really excited about learning something new and will be proud when he sees the logo he developed on t-shirts around school. I also think the interaction with new adults (not family or teachers or friends) was great.
I learned that writing articles is something I am really passionate about and would love to keep doing it in the future.

Give your high schooler something to do and accomplish over the summer without the stress and pressure.
Menlo Student (SMU)
I would like to sincerely thank you for your beneficial support, guidance and wisdom you shared with me over this past year. Our weekly sessions grew to become something I greatly looked forward to, rather than stressful college counseling meetings. I am grateful for your warm and trusting ways and your unconditional willingness to listen and provide support.
Palo Alto High School Parent (Colby College)
Our daughter ADORED Charlotte! She was the perfect temperament for her, she was incredibly organized, and she kept her on track and really ahead of schedule. Our daughter loved all of her meetings with Charlotte, and we are so grateful for this relationship.
Carlmont High School Student (University of Puget Sound)
CollegeCalm literally makes the process calming.
Sacred Heart Parent (Stanford, SCU, CalPoly, University of WA)
The right fit is more important than how prestigious a school is or how hard the school is to get in. Having gone through this process four times, with four very different children, I can honestly say that Roxana’s goal is help each child find the right school for them and mine have all loved the schools they’ve chosen.
Palo Alto High School Student (Pepperdine)
College Calm helped me line up my goals and figure out a schedule to make sure everything was my best work and turned in on time. I learned how to write both college essays and supplements (learning more about myself on the way). Although the college essay writing process is a long one, the end result was worth the work and editing. On top of being written well, I think they are representative of what kind of person I am and my accomplishments.
Thanks so much for walking us through the process and answering all of our questions as they came up. We REALLY valued your opinion on many subjects within the college application process! You are very easy to talk to and very professional. Our son felt he could talk with you easily and you connected with him and our family. The essay was a very good product which reflected him as a person. You took the time to get to know him and we enjoyed working with you each and every minute.
