We have received an overwhelming amount of support since we started this company and we are so grateful for that but many asked the question "What kind of services do you provide?" I hope this short blog post will give you all a better sense of who we are and why we do what we do.
We both work in higher education and we saw a need in many areas where students are not prepared to navigate the transition to college (and families are not prepared either!) It’s a daunting, confusing, and scary process. There are many steps to college...standardized testing, finding the right college with the right major, scheduling tours, being accepted, and don't get us started about the rising cost of an undergraduate education!
You may be thinking, “isn’t this what school counselors do?” The answer is yes-ish. Across the U.S., there is an average of one school counselor for every 464 public K-12 students. We aren't here to intrude on existing school counselor relationships, In fact, we want to work with school counselors and K-12 districts as a supplemental resource to best support your junior/senior class as they transition to post-secondary education, trade school, military enlistment, or into the workforce.
This is where SuccessU can help!
Believe me, we understand! As a mother of 5, I have gone through the college process 4 times and I understand how anxious students are during all of this. Wouldn't it be fantastic to have someone guide you through this process while saving you time, money, and frustration?
Our support doesn’t end when your student chooses a school. We can help your student navigate the difficult first-year transition, from helping your student find resources on campus, to learning how to live in a community setting, dealing with a bad grade, or struggling to find their footing away from home, we are there to help through it all. During their upper-class years, we offer assistance with resume writing, internship advice, and job interview preparation ...SuccessU is there to coach your student through it all.
