Testimonials

“I am thrilled that I have been accepted to UCLA–my #1 choice! My sister was home for Spring Break recently and was with me the night I received this exciting news. We both talked about our respective experiences working with you and agreed that your support and guidance was instrumental in helping us to navigate the system and develop a successful strategy. Thank you so much for all your efforts to help me identify the right mix of schools, and submit my applications, test scores, supplements and essays. Your ability to keep me motivated and on-task made an incredibly stressful process more bearable. On more than one occasion my parents have shared with other parents that their decision to use CCA was one of the best decisions they ever made. Knowing that I had you to keep me focused and grounded alleviated much of the stress for them as well. I will miss working with you.”
Crystal Springs HS student

“Thank you so much for taking the time to meet with us. Your calm manner, and clear direct questions are just what we needed to start thinking through how to handle the rest of the semester.”
Menlo Atherton HS parents

“I’m so excited to start at Berkeley! Thanks to you, I feel confident in my decision to commit.” 
Homestead HS student

“We can’t thank Michelle enough for all the help she has given our daughter for the past year and a half! Michelle made this process not only bearable, but enjoyable. Our daughter always looked forward to coming in and working with Michelle–she helped her stay grounded and productive. Michelle went above and beyond, reading our daughter’s essays whenever necessary and always responding to emails with lightning speed! Our daughter is incredibly proud of the work she has done, and grateful for all the help Michelle gave her at every step along the way!”
Menlo School student accepted early to Stanford

“Thank you for all the guidance you have given me through the college selection process. With your help I settled on a list of awesome schools to apply to and was accepted to plenty of them. I am heading off to Wash U in the fall and couldn’t have done it without you.”
Palo Alto HS student

“We really appreciate your help and expertise. After following your advice, our son is happily attending
Northwestern University!”
Monta Vista HS parent

“I just went to Indiana for orientation. The campus is just as beautiful as I remember it. All the people are so friendly and I can’t wait to move into the dorms in just over a month. I look forward to the challenges of college and am so thankful for your assistance in my quest to get there!” 
Los Altos HS student

“Our heartfelt thanks for the invaluable, steady, calm and excellent guidance you gave to our son (and us!) during the college application process. We couldn’t have done it without you! We are looking forward to doing it all again in two years with our younger daughter.”
Sacred Heart Prep parents

“I have to tell you how much I appreciate ALL you did for ALL three of my kids! Your support (for all of us), your professionalism and your sensitivity were priceless.”
Menlo-Atherton HS parent (one child attended USC and the other two UT-Austin)

“You made the terrifying concept of college go so smoothly and stress-free for me. I looked forward to our meetings every week and you were not only my college counselor, but my friend. Many laughs, rants about AP Calc, Common App drafts, and supplements later, I am somehow into college, and I could not have done it without you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
Sacred Heart Prep student attending Boston College

“We appreciate your thoughtful guidance and your ability to keep our daughter on track through the entire college application process. She faced a number of personal challenges during her senior year and I am especially grateful for your calming presence in her life.” 
Los Altos HS student attending University of Oregon

“I completely get why parents NEED you! You are the best!”
Menlo-Atherton HS parent
