Packages for Sophomores
head start: the TKG sophomore package
This package for Sophomores in high school helps students get organized and prepare for the college process by refining their academic and extracurricular profiles. We work with our Sophomore students to build on their strengths and become proficient in their areas of specialties. Our ultimate objective is to craft a compelling holistic profile and an exciting plan for their remaining high school years.
After an initial consultation and discussion of the student’s goals, we take 2-4 of their interests and turn them into areas of expertise that they can speak to and write about with authority. We have our younger students do readings, watch films, engage in dialogues with new mentors, and connect with real-life tangible experiences so that they go into the college application process with a exceptionally prepared profile. We also help our students navigate high school by helping them choose classes, decide on summer plans, create a comprehensive testing strategy, and anything else they may need along the way.
Come Senior year, we begin working on the Common App essay and the Common App activities supplement. We also construct a detailed timeline for application season inclusive of early decision, early action, and regular decision applications. Our students apply to a number of safety, target, and reach schools. During this all-important time, our counselors are actively involved in the day-to-day process. Parents receive a status report every other week and may call, text, or email questions as needed.
