College Application Program

The College Application Program is designed specifically for 12th grade students to help reduce the stress and anxiety that many families experience when submitting college applications.

Students meet regularly in small cohorts and in 1:1 sessions with a Thrive coach through the duration of the program. We use a scheduled process that takes participants through writing college essays, including the common app essay and college essays.  Participants receive guidance on understanding college essay prompts, feedback on their college essay format, scholarship essays, interview preparation, and reviewing admission and financial aid offers.
