We think that the college admissions process should be full of possibility, not something terrifying that drains the future of its excitement. We want to make sure your college admissions experience – from test prep to school selection to admissions — fulfills your needs and goals and opens the door to a bright future.
We think that the process looks different for every student. Some students will need more prep than others while some won’t need any prep. Some students won’t find the most competitive colleges fulfilling, even if they have the admissions profile to compete for an admissions spot. Others will discover ambitions that lead them to completely re-imagine what school would be the most rewarding for them.
There are lot of options out there for test prep and college admissions. Some have big names and have been around forever. Many are your local school teachers who try to transfer their classroom skills over to the (strange) world of ACTs and SATs. Unfortunately, good intentions and expertise aren’t the same thing. We understand that at the end of the day, you may not work with Breakaway. But you should insist that whoever you do work with follow some very sensible best practices.
This is the second time that my family has used Breakaway. I personally liked how my Breakaway counselor never let me go through the college process alone. He was always there to help me with whatever I needed help with. He made me feel secure with the choices I made and answered all my questions. Breakaway in general is a huge help and my stress was relieved because I worked with them.
