Our Philosophy

The college application process can be stressful for families and students, but it doesn’t have to be! At Magna (Latin for Great) College Consulting, our philosophy is that the college process should be an exciting time of self-discovery. We love getting to know our students, hearing their stories, and learning what motivates them. Working one-on-one with students in weekly meetings, we help them assess their strengths, explore academic and extracurricular experiences, create a balanced college list, identify opportunities, and craft a seamless story woven throughout their application that will make them stand out. By the end of our work together, our students find a college where they will thrive.

Comprehensive Program

Our distinctive comprehensive package is designed for families who want a full-service program. We believe the college planning process should be an exciting time for self-discovery and consider it a privilege to watch our students grow over the following two years. Because every student is different, we tailor each student’s college planning program based upon their individual needs.
