Description of Services
Helios provides comprehensive college counseling that is aligned with the way colleges practice holistic admissions. Because colleges are evaluating students’ academics, extracurricular activities, and characters, successful college counseling must also include all aspects of students’ lives. Helios strongly believes that breaking the college counseling process into separate pieces does not yield the kind of success people truly want.

Helios works with each student to create a personalized plan based on individual interests, goals, and needs. Because each student is different, so is every plan that Helios creates. Our college counseling is based on understanding your interests, priorities, strengths, needs, and values. By building meaningful relationships, Helios helps students grow so that they are more likely to reach their potential and end up happy with their college choices.
