What is JRA Educational Consulting’s Primary Focus?

Whether you’re child is getting ready to apply to college – or about to transition to elementary, middle, or high school – choosing the school that best suits his or her academic needs and personality can be daunting. But don’t worry – we’ve got your back. AT JRA Educational Consulting, our primary focus is to help your children find and get accepted into their best-fit schools. We’ll make sure they’re prepared for their next educational milestones – and that they excel once they achieve them. 

Why Do I Need A College Counselor?

Because the college preparation, application, and admissions process is among the biggest sources of stress and frustration for high school students and their families.  Stress often leads to procrastination – which leads to even more pressure.

As every parent and teenager knows, getting into college has become increasingly more competitive.  Acceptance rates are decreasing, while the number of applicants is increasing. It’s no longer enough to be a well-rounded student with good grades and a long list of extracurricular activities, because just about every college applicant has good grades and a long list of extracurricular activities. You can’t expect to stand out if you’re doing exactly what everyone else is doing. 

The competition is fierce, and the application process can be downright overwhelming. But it doesn’t have to be. Wouldn’t it be great to have an expert walk you through the process, eliminating the stress, building your teen’s confidence, and helping increase his chances of getting admitted into his top-choice colleges? That’s where JRA Educational Consulting comes in.

I Have So Many Questions…Where Do We Begin?

When it comes to college preparation, there’s so much to consider. You and your teen might feel the pressure while wondering: 

  • When should I start preparing for college (some students begin college prep as early as middle school)? 
  • When should I take the SAT or ACT – and do I even need to take these tests?
  • When should I start working on my Common App?
  • How can I make my college essays stand out?
  • Which colleges should I apply to? What are the deadlines? And are they realistic choices for me?
  • How do I stay organized and on track?
  • How can I keep track of all the requirements, deadlines, essays, interviews, school tours…?
  • Am I taking the right classes in high school, and is my activity résumé strong enough?
  • How can I make myself a more competitive candidate?
  • Why didn’t I start college prep sooner – is it too late?!

Relax. As professional college counselors, we have the answers to all of your questions – and then some (we even have answers to important questions you didn’t know you had). We’ve helped (countless) students get accepted into their dream colleges, and we will help yours.

Can’t My Teen Just Go To His Guidance Counselor?

Although student support is available in high school, guidance counselors are overwhelmed. College counseling is only one of the numerous daily responsibilities that demand their attention. Most guidance counselors just don’t have the time or expertise to devote to helping individual students navigate the complex college admissions process. In fact, although the National Association for College Counseling recommends 250 students per public school counselor, a recent report indicated that the national average is 482 students per counselor. 

At JRA Educational Consulting, we provide comprehensive guidance and support far beyond what’s available in local schools. Your child is our fulltime job, and her success is our top priority. Even better? We have the expertise to make it happen.

As parents, shouldn’t we be the ones helping our teen apply to college?

Absolutely! As parents, you are your children’s biggest advocates, and nobody wants them to succeed more than you do. But preparing for and applying to college isn’t easy. The application process is continually evolving, and many colleges have their own, specific requirements. When going it alone, it can be difficult to remain updated and informed about the various procedures and deadlines. Plus, teens are known for asserting their independence – and for not always wanting or appreciating parental guidance.  

Preparing for your teen’s college journey should be a fun, momentous milestone that you enjoy together – not a source of tension and arguments. JRA Educational Consulting will create a win-win by working with you, as a family, to help turn a complex, stressful situation into a successful - and even pleasant – collaboration.

What Will a JRA Educational Consulting College Counselor Do For My Teen?

Our expert college advisors will minimize the stress and anxiety associated with the college application process so that you and your family can enjoy this exciting time and treasure your pre-college days together.  And it will be a custom-tailored experience.

We’ll consider your teen’s interests, abilities, and goals to custom-tailor a personalized action plan and individualized admissions strategy. We’ll guide her through every facet of the college planning and application process. Together, we will make your teen stand out and help increase her chances of getting accepted into her best-fit colleges.

JRA Educational Consulting will help your teens: 

  • Ensure that they get the most out of high school by selecting the appropriate courses, participating in impactful extracurricular activities, and engaging in experiences that will enhance their activity résumés and make them more competitive candidates
  • Create a balanced list of their best-fit colleges, taking into consideration each student’s academic, social, and financial needs as well as interests, goals, college location, and other important factors
  • Develop college résumés featuring impactful extracurricular activities that make them stand out to college admission officers
  • Brainstorm topics for personal statements and essays
  • Write and edit essays customized for each college (we help students go from a blank page to a powerful, compelling essay that nobody else could write because it’s their story)
  • Review transcripts
  • Optimize and review college applications
  • Prepare their Self-Reported Student Academic Record (SSAR)
  • Locate potential scholarships/financial aid opportunities
  • Show Demonstrated Interest
  • Prepare for effective college interviews and visits
  • Refine college lists after college visits
  • Create a timeline to stay focused, on schedule, and ensure that all requirements and deadlines are met
  • And so much more! 

Do I Have To Sign Up for All Services, or Can I Choose Specific Areas Where My Child Needs Help?

Our expert counselors and educational consultants are available to meet your family’s needs, offering comprehensive guidance, individual services – and everything in between. Some families consult with us to address specific tasks like résumé and essay review, while others prefer guidance before, during, and after the college application process.
