Crimson Education is a leading college admissions consulting agency, and in the intensely competitive process of attaining the right entry into the best university, all help is needed! We have worked long and hard with our son to prepare him for a successful career, and all of that starts with the right college education. Above is a picture from our son’s middle school days, we learned early on in New York City that getting into the right middle and high school is very competitive.
I became part of an awesome peer group when my son was in Kindergarten. Three people from this time period were even more important to me. While my son was great friends with their children his age, each of these three parents had a son who was four years older than mine. I relied on them for a lot of information as to what I was headed for as my son grew, and the last few years I also was able to watch them work hard dealing with the college admissions process.
I entered Albany State University in 1977. I never visited the school. Today parents fly all over the country to tour schools to find the best fit for their kids. This is extremely expensive if your college search is country wide verses statewide. Crimson Education helps to navigate this journey to save you time and money, and hopefully to help narrow your search so you are visiting your top five schools rather than your top ten. Crimson Education builds a team of strategists, extracurricular mentors, and tutors for all of the students they work with, you get the total package when you work with them!
Studying is not enough!
Crimson Education starts working with you from an early age. The beginning of high school in fact. To get into the best college, one needs to present an inspiring resume to the prospective college. I remember hearing my mom talk to her friends when I was in 4th grade, saying that taking a musical instrument would help me to attain preferred college admissions status. Well, a few months of trumpet playing at the age of 10, and we knew that would not be the route that would work for me! Luckily my son has far more talent than me, he was the second lead in his 8th grade school play, this will go on his college application!
Put your ego aside, we are all proud of our children’s many, many accomplishments, but unfortunately we are not on the admissions team looking at our children’s applications. But, now you have professionals who know what the colleges want, what they look for, so they can guide us, and that guidance starts now!
Extracurricular activities, community service, team sports: these are the items schools are looking for when they are looking at their multitude of applicants. What makes you stand out?
Crimson Ed starts now with guiding you through this intense process. Find activities that interest your child now, don’t wait until 11th grade, perhaps four years in one activity will help them to reach a higher position which would look terrific on their admissions form! We had our son join a community service organization, BBYO, in 8th grade to keep him involved in out synagogue. The other benefit of that membership is that when he applies for college he will have over four years of community service experience to show, and perhaps include in his college essay.
I live in NYC where admission to elementary, middle, and high school are extremely competitive, and the college process is even more grueling. Programs that guide you can cost thousands and thousands of dollars, while others hire specialists to work with them one on one. How do we compete with that? With Crimson Education. They have tutors, mentors, and even former admissions officers to help guide you through the process. They can advise you on Ivy League College admissions processes, in fact, they have ex-admissions officers from Ivy League Schools on staff, that’s why 87% of their students were accepted into one of their top 3 schools! They also offer guidance and advice on how to apply for scholarships. Crimson Education is the affordable option, highly regarded and prepared to guide you through this journey, starting now.
