Our Clients Say
Sequoia Student (University of Oregon)
College Calm helped me most by getting me to go after what I really wanted. Before college calm, I thought I wanted to go the colleges that everybody else wanted to go to. College Calm helped me realized what college would be right for me.
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.
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.
SSP Participant Parent
The Synergy project was an amazing experience for our student. He stretched himself, learned something completely new, and contributed significantly to something greater than himself; all things he would not have done had he not been fortunate enough to be in contact with you. Thank you for all of your patience, encouragement, and guidance.”
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.

Carlmont High School Student (Tufts)
CollegeCalm helped reduce my stress by giving me deadlines to meet and by providing structured time to work on the essays at our meetings. Jenny also helped me when I was stuck and needed some guidance on where to take my essays. CollegeCalm helped me find what schools would be a good fit for me and helped me through the application process for each school. This really made a difference because I would’ve been totally lost without college calm as a resource.
The best part of the SSP for me was talking to experts and putting myself out to learn more about a topic that interested me.
Menlo Parent (Pitzer)
Jenny took the pressure off us as parents, helped our son to feel independent in his applications, and helped him manage his time really well — much better than I would have thought! She even seemed to help him in his organization of his schoolwork; After a career of 3.1GPS, he’s running a senior year GPA of 4.4!
I learned that I am really interested in making the environment a healthier place.
