Frequently Asked Questions.

What kind of students do you work with?

Premium Prep is dedicated to helping every type of student, from the high achiever to the more academically challenged, from the most motivated to those that need that extra push. Our counselors also have expertise and experience in specialty areas, such as business, architecture, engineering, athletics, and the arts, and in helping students with learning and attention challenges. Our primary goal is to match each student with the most suitable counselor.

How is the counseling process structured?

We offer multiple counseling programs. Each begins with our Comprehensive Assessment, the cornerstone of Premium Prep’s approach, ensuring that your college process starts off properly. This is followed by custom college guidance from your College Counselor and Writing Specialist based on your selected package option—everything your student and family needs for a successful college process.

When do we start?

We are prepared to start as soon as you are ready or in need of help. Our usual rule of thumb: the sooner, the better. Students typically begin in 10th grade, but every family is different and may be ready at a different time. Just contact us, and we’ll be happy to set up a plan that is right for you.
