Hello Friends- it's been a busy few weeks supporting students through final application deadlines. Will be posting information soon on CCARR's Junior Jumpstart program (beginning in April '17) designed to support Class of '18 students.

Hello!! CARRLLC has had a busy fall supporting our students and families as they prepared 2017 college applications. Our high school seniors have now completed the application process feeling confident that they have thoroughly explored their options and had the tools to understand how to choose the education options that are best for them and their families.

From here on through January '17 CCARRLLC will be supporting our students exploring transfer options, summer abroad study and summer internships to support career success. If you are still unclear on which direction to go for college admissions it's NOT too late! Please send an email to [email protected] and we'll be glad to help you get some traction with a 20 minute complimentary consult. Beginning in February, CCARRLLC will begin Junior Jump Start for the Class of 2018 and our Career Transitions Support for 2017 new College Graduates.

Wishing you all a very Peaceful Holiday and Happy New Year!!

Wanted to wish our CCARR students and all students taking the SAT tomorrow the very best of luck! Making an effort to do your best on the SAT (and/or ACT) is a good strategy for maximizing your college choices, however, also remember that there are LOTS of great colleges that can offer you the academics and college experiences to gain skills for career and life success. It's all about finding the right "fit" for you!! CCARR is all about supporting students and families navigate the college going process for a successful future so please contact us. We love to help and are happy to offer a complimentary consultation to hear about each student and discuss strategies and services to support your journey to college and career success. Send us a message via Facebook or our website to schedule your student's consultation today

The World's Best University Isn't in the U.S., According to a New Ranking

Today, in an increasingly global economy, highly reputable undergrad and graduate programs, can be found across the globe and frequently at a notably reasonable cost as compared to comparable programs in the U.S. Many times, graduate and even sometimes undergraduate programs in non-English speaking countries are taught in the English to accommodate international scholars. CCARR has experience in supporting students' for the overseas university application and admissions process. Please give us a call for more information. We'd be very happy to assist !!

Enjoyed a fabulous learning opportunity at the IECA -Independent Educational Consultants Association Summer Institute this week. The Summer Institute took place at beautiful Swarthmore College in suburban Philadephia and I was enormously fortunate to learn so much from the dynamic faculty and also met over 100 new college advising colleagues from all over the US as well as international consultants. So looking forward to offering even greater support to Fredericksburg area students and families embarking on their college selection journey beginning in September!
