Academic admissions and college administrative systems can be insensitive and hard to navigate when getting your student back in after time away or simply in need of therapeutic supports. Many students and families often don't know they can ask for help or who to turn to when faced with challenges. Having an expert to point you in the right direction and show you how to avert obstacles, or get over them when they appear, can help preserve your student and save them from the trauma of failure and you the cost.
Many students have struggled with the road to college. Growing numbers of students have been receiving academic or therapeutic support in high school and families have concerns about taking the big step to a college campus. Many have tried a year of college and failed out due to poor organization, problems with socialization, and increasingly often succumb to substance use. Others have had to go to residential treatment and are making plans for a return to campus after a therapeutic crisis. Having a solid plan and a specialized college advisor is the key to success.
Intervention is all about response time and corrective action. If you have a student who is faced with disciplinary action, academic probation, or suspension we can facilitate an effective plan for recovery. Knowing who to involve and what to say to prevent compounding consequences or possible dismissal and expulsion is the kind of support you need in moments like these. We act as advisor, guide, and advocate in these processes and stand with you as a protector in getting your student back in good standing.
