Does The College Admissions Process Feel Foreign to You?

The thought of your “baby” leaving home in just a few years (or months) is scary enough, but having to navigate college admissions, a system you know little or nothing about, will inevitably cause stress and tension in your home. The worry and overwhelm can lead to your teen feeling unloved and unsupported, which is never a recipe for a positive relationship.

  • You have little or no access to the school counselor, and you’re left to navigate this process on your own.
  • You don’t know where to begin, what to ask, and where to invest your time and resources.
  • You feel lost and confused, and COVID only complicates this process even more. 
  • You want to give your teen the best and you’re looking for the support your entire family needs to get through this process together. (Without killing each other:)

But What if You Were Ahead of the Game and Knew What You Were Doing?

Imagine never having to ask, “Am I doing this right? How can I be more helpful? Where do I look?” Imagine feeling ahead of your peers because you are getting solid tips, candid answers, and the expert advice you need from a veteran college counselor. #KnowMore

More than anything, imagine knowing the exact questions to ask to get your teen to open up. Imagine sending the right texts that show your love the way your teen needs to hear it. Imagine having a flourishing relationship with your teen in their last years at home. #LoveMore

Imagine championing your child’s happy future by fueling her confidence, and building his dreams. #DreamBigger

I Don't Have to Remind You That the Time You Have Left with Your Teen at Home is Slipping Away Quickly.

And you probably understand that the sooner your get started preparing for the application process the better. Too many parents fail to prepare their child early on in high school and then scramble to get everything done in the senior year.

Here's the hard truth: Chances are your teen's dream college admits LESS than 35% of the applicant pool and s/he will apply with only 6 semesters of grades to show, not the full 8.

You only have one chance to get this right. The clock is ticking and your teen's future is at stake.

I Want to Get Ahead of the Curve

The Challenge Isn’t a Lack of Effort... It’s Knowing Who to Trust and What to Believe!

College admissions isn't what it was when we were in school. You want what's best for your teen, so you search Google and find lists that are more confusing than helpful.

What if You Could...

1. Significantly Increase Your Knowledge About the Rarely Discussed College Admission Truths. #KnowMore

I know what you’re thinking. “It wasn’t like this when we applied to college.” You rolled out of bed and took the SAT, applied to three schools, and called it a day. When did getting admitted to the once “safety” school become nearly impossible to access? UGH! 

Your teen has high hopes for college and you want to do everything you can to help him get closer and help her realize her dreams! The truth is this: this process is not hard, it’s just that most families know little about the behind-the-scenes truths. I’m letting you behind the curtain and revealing everything I know, so you and your family can stay ahead of your peers. #KnowMore

2. Instantly Become a Better Parent to Your Teenager.  #LoveMore

I hate to admit it, but my relationship with my mom was strained when I was a teen. My parents were separated, my mom worked long hours and rarely came to my school events. HOWEVER, I will NEVER forget the day Mom left work early (never happened), to drive me up the 110 freeway to meet with Mr. Vargas at USC. He took the time to explain the college admission process to both of us. The application, what to do, how to fill it out, when and how to apply for financial aid.  Mom took notes and later we made a plan. Together, we did it. We navigated the process together.  I never felt more love from Mom than I did that year. Since my senior year, I have never questioned her love for me. 

Asking for help and guidance doesn’t make you weak, it means you are smart, resourceful, and proactive. It means you are willing to do whatever it takes to see your child get what s/he deserves. 

If you are ready to shower your teen with love, I am ready to become your Mr. Vargas.  #LoveMore

3. Improve Your Teen’s Chances to Earn More “You’re In” Letters. #DreamBigger

90% of the college application happens before senior year. Let that sink in for a second. Most families fail to recognize that while students graduate with 8 semesters of GPA, they will apply to college with 6 semesters of earned GPA. What does that mean? It means the clock starts ticking the moment your child begins her/his freshman year. 

If you found me, you likely have a motivated teenager that has at least one college on their dream board that admits fewer than 35% of their applicant pool. That’s about 300 colleges or so. If this is true for your teen, you better believe freshman year grades and curriculum matter. 

Your only job as a parent is to help your teen maximize their college choices. The secret to doing that: start early. Empowering yourself with knowledge does NOT make you a “Tiger Parent,” it means you are smart and dream of your child’s happy future. I, for one, am proud of you already. #DreamBigger

“I just finished the Parent Academy and I loved it! Your energy is spot on! I love that you walk through individual websites. It was so helpful. Thank you! My younger daughter can’t wait to join Dream College Academy.”

~ Adrienne Ann, Parent of Class of 2021 and 2023

“The knowledge and guidance that Dr. Colon provides is so valuable. I talked to my teen about the many pieces to college admissions, but he didn’t truly hear me and just expressed a lot of anxiety. Through the course he was given the knowledge and tools to tackle not just the admissions process but also gained wonderful principles for life, and the encouragement to be a “doer”. I saw his anxiety dissipate and a light bulb come on. I can’t wait to see how he puts his knowledge into action, and I highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to educate their teen about the admissions process and give them a roadmap for success in that challenge as well as life!”

Jennifer, Parent of Class of 2023

“The DCA experience took the edge off my mounting pre-college anxiety. We now have a thoughtful and well organized plan to execute. Dr. Colon’s knowledge and experience helped to answer so many questions we had about the college application process. We are ready now.”

Susan, Parent of Twins, Class of 2022

Final Thoughts From Dr. C.

If you are still reading, I thought you should know my story and meet my MOM.

I tore open the big envelope and read it to Mom over the phone, “Dear Ms. Cyndie Colón, It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the class of …” I didn’t get past the first sentence when I dropped the red phone and began screaming while Mom cried on the other end.

I was raised among twenty cousins, fourteen Tíos and Tías, one abuela, Mom, Dad, and sisters, Jessica and Stephanie. From this small village I learned how to make tamales, apply make-up, play card games, and enjoy soccer. But, in the fall of my senior year in high school, as I dreamed of being the first in my family to attend college, I had run out of advisors. 

My dream was to attend the University of Southern California, but because my parents were going through divorce I didn’t believe USC was possible. In the fall of my senior year I announced to my mother, “I decided not to apply to USC.” With one look, I knew she was not having it. 

My mother was on a mission. She knew nothing about applying or paying for college, but within 48 hours, she found Mr. Vargas. It was Raul Vargas, Director of Mexican American Alumni Association at USC, whose simple words of encouragement fueled our confidence. That week Mom became my superhero. I never felt more loved than I did that year. Together we dreamed the impossible, and together we made it happen.

Today, I’m on a mission to do for you what Mr. Vargas did for me and my mother: become YOUR Coach, Champion, and Cheerleader, allowing YOU to Know More, Love More, and Dream Bigger with your Happy Teen!

I'm In! Let's Do This!
