Premier Consulting Services
Our mission is to spark curiosity and genuine enthusiasm towards a constructive passion that will form the critical building block of our students’ futures.
At Command Education, our experienced counselors have developed a keen eye for what makes an exceptional extracurricular list. We help choose activities that both reflect our students’ unique goals and interests and will demonstrate to admissions officers what role they’ll play on campus once admitted. We excel at discovering unique projects and opportunities for our students, from writing public policy proposals to founding their own nonprofits.
Admissions officers are looking for applications that show not only excellence, but the drive to be a self-starter and a go-getter. We help our students locate leadership opportunities in their schools and communities and provide guidance in taking those opportunities to the next level. Our students aren’t just class presidents — they are award-winning nonprofit founders, community organizers, political activists, and entrepreneurs.
It’s often an intimidating task to sum up one’s academic and professional experience onto one sheet of paper. Many students overlook the crucial process of crafting a proper resume.
At Command Education, our counselors will help you accurately and strategically present your experience to colleges as well as to potential employers.
The college interview may be the most feared part of the entire admissions process. Interview skills are vital for getting any job, internship, or offer of admission. We guide students through extensive prep and mock interviews to ensure they have the expertise and confidence and to let their personalities shine and leave a lasting impression.
As of June 2018, we have updated our service offerings. Our Premier Roadmap Packages are multi-year, extensive programs in which we guide our students to make the most of their high school careers. For seniors, we offer thorough guidance through the college application process, assisting in college selection, essay revisions, Common Application completion, and any necessary supplemental applications. Beyond these full-service options, we also offer specialized support through hourly packages, internship and research placement, and our in-person workshops.
