Areteem College Counseling Program
With 12 years of experience working with students and families, Areteem has witnessed many successful stories of students getting into their dream colleges. Many of them have eventually graduated and entered professional fields. There is no one formula that fits all, but certainly, there are principles and guidelines to use. Basically, the US college application process is a self-discovery process for students to identify their strength, weakness, like and dislike, interest and passion. Using a holistic approach to assess the student as a whole person, and developing a plan that works for you for your personal and professional growth. A good counselor will become your life coach, and help you build the path to success not only in college application but also in careers and life in general.
