Our Clients Say
Sequoia Parent (University of Oregon)College Calm made it seem effortless with the schedules & knowledge passed on. All the questions that we had were always answered and there was no stress between parent & student. She knew what she needed to do and when.
I learned that by putting in real time and effort, I can actually create content that I am proud of.
Sequoia High School Student (Emory)
College Calm kept me accountable and on a schedule for completing my application and essays. This reduced my stress by a large amount because otherwise, I know that I would have procrastinated. It was also nice to get feedback and reassurance throughout so that I knew I was on the right track.
The Student Synergy Program helped me learn better ways of researching to find the best possible sources. This was the most useful part because it’s applicable for so many situations, especially in school.
I learned that I can do so much with my time when I am focused and determined to create something. I always wanted to do so much with my life, but thought that I did not have the motivation or drive to finish anything. However this project has taught me that I am capable of so much.
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.
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.
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.

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.
