The Acceptance Ahead Approach

Whether you are in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade, college planning is an exciting time!

At Acceptance Ahead, we believe that students should take charge of their educational

future. We provide the necessary tools and guidance to assist students in their exploration

of colleges and the ultimate navigation of the college admissions process.


There is no one-size-fits-all approach  to the college search and application process.

Each student is different and every family situation is unique. Acceptance Ahead will

customize each student’s counseling program to match the student’s needs, abilities

and aspirations. Our comprehensive services provide what it takes for students to feel

confident, comfortable and successful – whether the student’s journey with us begins

as early as 9th grade or as late as the start of senior year.


Admissions criteria at colleges and universities are becoming increasingly more

demanding and complicated. At Acceptance Ahead, we aim to take the stress OUT and

put the student’s unique voice IN. We believe that applying to colleges should be an

enlightening time for students and their families rather than an overwhelming burden.
