College Planning

At Buckley Education

we know that applying to and deciding the ‘perfect’ college can be thrilling, ominous, and stress provoking.

We are experts in calming nerves and helping our students feel confident about their accomplishments. We take time to get to know each student individually -- their passions, dreams, and what they care about most -- in order to suggest “best-fit” schools that align with each student's social, academic, and emotional needs. We provide concrete steps to help navigate the college application process (from essays, to letters of recommendation, and even to financial aid) in a safe, warm, and stress-free environment.

Our Process

We hold the highest and most esteemed credentials in the field of education. We understand the intricacies of the college application process and foster relationships with families based on compassion and honesty. We create a place where students and parents feel validated and supported. The counseling sessions are conducted on a one-on-one basis. Most sessions are one (1) hour in length, however, some sessions may be extend to ninety (90) minutes based on a student’s needs.
