4-Yr College Students

Creative Marbles Consultancy’s advisors have dedicated their lives to educating the young.  Over the last fifteen years, CMC’s consultants have collaborated with hundreds of families to navigate the increasingly complicated college admissions process. Every student deserves a college where they can nurture their talents and create lasting economic success—a goal which is our passion.

COLLEGE TRANSITION ADVISING RETAINER OPTION:

COLLEGE TRANSITION ADVISING

Families gain a hedge for the substantial investment being made for the student's college education over the next four years. 

Separated from support back home, yet uninformed about assistance available or encountering inadequate staff, especially endemic at large public universities, inexperienced college freshmen may be unable to access assistance to the extent needed. Furthermore, amidst the pressures of making new friends, adjusting to new academic expectations and wrestling with adult responsibilities, including being "independent from mom and dad", freshmen may resort to their peers, Google or worse social media for guidance. In the first two years of college, therefore, students risk naively making costly mis-steps, with long term economic and social ramifications.

Through meetings, video conferencing, text and phone calls, our team will be available to both parents and students. We share our intricate knowledge of the college campus, so can help direct students to access help more efficiently, as well as can advise parents.

ACADEMIC MANAGEMENT RETAINER:

  • Educational Support

EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT RETAINER

An advising support retainer, designed to compliment the efforts of parents and students who are navigating what has become a disrupted educational process during the time of COVID-19.

Pre-COVID educational expectations for students: pay enough attention in class, complete homework, commensurately compensated with good grades and college admissions, graduating into prosperity—where parents intervened rarely—are being challenged

Since March 2020, parents and students are bereft of essential information, and even a familiar school structure from which they can devise and execute an effective academic plan

  • Parents and students gain on-demand access to advisors, as well as timely, forward-looking guidance, tailored to each family’s specific educational needs.
  • Parents learn how to transform partnerships with teacher(s) to best support their students’ effort to learn from home. 
  • Students learn how to manage a digitalized educational process.
  • Students gain a sounding board to better direct their learning process to gain greater confidence in one’s inherent ability.
  • Families can either define or revise college admissions strategies, utilizing our nationwide network of university staff to support students’ higher education goals.
