Our Clients Say . . .
Carlmont High School Student (University of Puget Sound)
CollegeCalm literally makes the process calming.
We felt that [CC] wasn’t a gift for our student, but a gift for all of us. Given what other parents have shared, I had anticipated yelling and arguments . . . we had none. It was great having someone else set the deadlines for him that he had to stick to. Having him bring a 98% completed written supplement to us allowed everyone to celebrate what was written. This helps them feel confident and comfortable with what is ultimately submitted.
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.
Sequoia High School Parent (University of Oregon)
CollegeCalm made it seem effortless w/ schedules & knowledge passed on. All the questions that we came up were always answered and there no stress between parent & student. She knew what she needed to do and when.
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.
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.
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.

Sequoia Parent (University of Notre Dame and Tulane)
The most important reason that College Calm’s services are helpful is that it mostly takes us (parents) out of the equation; we can be available to help without having to nag, prod or push. It helps save the parent/teen relationship.
