College Consulting

At ICL Academy, we prepare students to get into the college of their dreams, but also to be fully engaged leaders in college and in life.

The Authentic Admission Track

We know what’s on your mind. We’re parents, too. When you send your child to private school, you are expecting the kind of curated, individualized attention and guidance that ICL Academy provides. College planning is a conversation that starts at the very beginning of our journey together.

Students begin creating their ICL resume when they write their Ikigai & Mission Statement, then receive regular counseling, SAT/ACT prep classes, assistance creating NCAA student recruiting profiles, full access to Cialfo, and hands-on webinar workshops from premiere counselor Danny Ruderman, Essay Dog.com, AthletesUSA, NCSA, and University Sports Program.

At ICL, however, we don’t just prepare your student to get into the college of their dreams. ICL’s Impact Learning model will equip your child to thrive once they get there, and succeed as fully engaged leaders in college and in life. 

 

ICL Alumni have Attended:

Personalized College Advising

Our experienced college counselors guide students through the entire application process. Our counselors have years of experience and have developed relationships with many college and university administrators. They spend meaningful time with each and every student to ensure their experience and academic abilities are presented to colleges in the most positive way possible.

Individualized Learning Goals

Our attentive and caring faculty schedule meetings throughout the year with students and families to build and modify their course schedule and academic needs. Our counseling department works to address personalized options based on students’ existing educational experiences, talents, skills, and passions. We work with each family to understand your college goals — a conversation that begins in 7th grade. We also guide families through NCAA eligibility approval by building student recruiting profiles.

Counseling Network Affiliations

Our college assistance programs include Cialfo, a cutting-edge college guidance platform designed for students to seamlessly submit every piece of their college application electronically, the Next College Student Athlete (NCSA) recruiting organization,  University Sports Program, a college athletic consulting program, AthletesUSA a scholarship search organization, as well as additional SAT and ACT preparation offered by master teachers.

Our entire team is working to help you meet your goals.
