Every year we update, refine, and improve our programs and materials and this year we are excited to announce the launch of COLLEGE CALM INTENSIVE WORKSHOPS

Collectively, the counselors at College Calm bring over 60 years of expertise to the college counseling process. We have experience as college admissions officers, college athletic coaches, service-learning specialists, mental health counselors, scholarship administrators, and immersion program leaders. We work with student profiles ranging from a 2.5 GPA to a 4.5 GPA and enjoy working with all kinds of teenagers. We take great pride in our ability to meet students where they are and helping families navigate through the process in a calm, efficient, and engaging manner. Over the last 12 years, we have honed and crafted the most effective and thoughtful way to move through all aspects of the college application process.

Workshop #1 College List

$399 Sunday, January 9th 9:00 am - 12:30pm

The foundation of the college application process rests on thoughtful college research. Students need to think about their priorities and then figure out how to evaluate colleges based on their specific criteria. We have fine-tuned many proprietary documents to help students efficiently determine their values and effectively research colleges.

Workshop #2 Activities and Majors:

$399 Sunday, January 23 or February 27th
9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Students need to be involved in high school to be a competitive college applicant. In this workshop we will help students capture their involvement and determine how their spring and summer activities can complement their applications. Although most colleges do not make students determine their major for admissions many schools will ask students to discuss their academic interests and we will begin preparing students to tell their academic story.

Workshop #3 The UC Personal Insight Questions

$399 Sunday March 13th or April 24th
9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The UC Personal Insight Questions (PIQs) are the most comprehensive questions asked on college applications. Even if students do not plan to apply to the UC System, we have them complete four PIQs so they are prepared to talk about four different aspects of themselves. These insight questions allow students to test writing about different topics and often are the foundation for their personal essay and many supplemental essays.

Workshop #4 The Personal Statement

$399 • Sunday, June 5th 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

For students, the writing process is often the most overwhelming part of college applications. In our over 60 years of college counseling experience, we have developed a process that helps students determine their topic and share their story.  ** Additional dates will be added in May and June.

Workshop #5 The Applications

We will take students through common mistakes and make sure they consider how they want their information displayed on their first application.
