Athletes bring a unique and sought-after skill to college communities. Whether your student is interested in playing at the Division I, Division II or Division III level, it is usually up to the student to reveal his or her skills to the coach. It's important, then, to understand the steps to best showcase your teen's ability. College Find will not only find the schools that are seeking your student's talent, but also inform and support your student through the recruiting process.
Is your student a gifted musician, singer, artist, actor or dancer? If so, there may be a special path through the college admissions door. College Find will not only find the schools that are seeking your student's talent, but also inform and support your student through the audition or portfolio process.
While all colleges offer some services for student who learn differently, programs and support vary widely from campus to campus. It's important to know where your student can find success. College Find knows the questions to ask and the places to look based on your student's profile.
"Working with Gael has been incredibly helpful to our son as well as us as parents. Being away from the College search and application process for over 30 years, left us out of touch and unclear about current processes. Gael's early proactive and step-by-step approach made a daunting process manageable for our son. By focusing on what was important to him, and establishing a set of selection criteria early on, he was able to identify his core interests and Gael was then able to help him find those schools that had the best chance of being a good fit.
In the end, he is very excited to be attending a small, independent private college that has the strong Marine Science program that he was looking for, and the close-knit campus community he desired from the beginning. When it was time to make his final decision, we looked back to those early selection criteria and it was truly amazing how well his college choice aligned with his original aspirations!
There is no question that we might never have found this college had we not been working with Gael; she made this process enjoyable for all of us."

"Excellent overall experience. College Find/Gael helped us in a way we couldn't - organizing the somewhat overwhelming process of applying to college."
