High School Sophomores

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.


  • Strategic Advising
  • Comprehensive Advising



One strategically timed meeting, typically in spring 2021, when CMC advisors will counsel families about junior class schedules, summer and other extracurricular activities, as well as answer questions about upcoming SAT and ACT exams.  

Additionally, CMC’s advisors will be available by phone, text, email and video conference throughout the 2020-21 school year to answer questions about high school and college admissions.  Plus, families will receive The CMC Report, a quarterly newsletter with tips and news about educational trends and the college admissions process.



Two strategically timed meetings, one in the fall semester and one in spring semester, for families to understand more about the college admissions process.

In the fall meeting, CMC advisors will counsel families about choosing extracurricular activities, taking the October 2020 PSAT and how to manage more rigorous honors and AP courses.

In the spring meeting, CMC consultants will advise families about the upcoming junior year course selection, planning for summer activities, taking SAT Subject Tests, if warranted, as well as decoding Fall 2020 PSAT scores.

As a bonus, CMC’s advisors will be available by phone, text, email, and video conference throughout the 2020-21 school year to advise about college admissions. Additionally, families will receive The CMC Report, with timely tips and news about education and college admissions.


  • Educational Support



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

When families retain Creative Marbles experts: 

  • 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.

A diverse advisory team, including a Harvard trained expert with a decade of high school teaching experience, now directly counseling families regarding a variety of educationally related topics.
