11th Grade

Students who join us during their junior year jump right into the process by working with our expert admissions professionals to build their "U" profile. Through exercises, activities, and writing samples, our staff works with students to create opportunities for growth while helping them to search, select and begin to apply to college.


Students who begin their work with us in 11th grade receive guidance and support to:

  • Explore academic interests to help guide their future course selections
  • Discover aptitudes and interests to assist in their involvement in extracurricular activities
  • Develop tools to expand their self-advocacy, study skills, time management, and other leadership skills
  • Devise a plan for summer opportunities
  • Engage in projects to build on their curiosity
  • Participate in compassion projects and design a comprehensive plan for future standardized tests (which tests to take and when to take them, and how to prepare)
  • Develop a unique college search, selection and admissions plan based on their "U" profile
  • Create a list of schools that match their interests, aptitudes, needs, and wants
  • Receive advice on recommendations, additional academic and extracurricular opportunities, scholarship, and financial aid
  • Establish a timeline for all application materials
  • Begin the writing process
