So Many College Choices. How Do You Pick the Right One for You?

College Driven aides students and their parents in deciding which colleges or universities are a good fit for the student and guides the student in reaching their college ambitions and career destinations. By partnering with each family, personalized services and programs help define the student’s strongest attributes. Getting the right fit is key. Driving efforts in the right direction is critical.

Writing Center
Essay Support

With all that goes into a college admission application, there's really only one element where the student's true voice can be heard: The Personal Essay. It's the one area that will never "look" like any one else's, so it's one of the most critical portions of the entire application. College Driven supports the student writer by offering help in brainstorming ideas, editing works, building an essay library for all those extra supplemental essays that loom ahead. The amount of personal essays a student must compose is daunting, but College Driven keeps it manageable and fun.

I can’t thank College Driven enough for helping us in such a caring way. Lilly Slater was able to transform chaotic and emotional into calm and positive. Really miraculous!! We could not have done this without her. My daughter ended up at the perfect school [WashU. in St. Louis] and is thriving!
