Launching Right Package


Launching Right Package


For 9th Graders

Personalized help to ensure that you launch your high school career right. You’ll work with your coach to devise and implement a strategy for making the most of your first year of high school to you on the path to your dream college.


The Launching Right Package includes:

Coaching:  4 structured one-on-one coaching sessions with your Ivey College Coach.

  • You will be matched with one coach selected just for you and you will work with that coach throughout the process.
  • Your coaching sessions will last 30-45 minutes each and you will focus in each session on a particular topic related to launching your high school career with an eye toward admission to your dream college.
  • You will have assignments that must be completed before each session.
  • Your coaching sessions will be conducted by phone or Skype.

Out-of-Session Support:  Your Ivey College Coach is working behind the scenes and is always just an email away.

  • Between sessions, your coach does work on your behalf (like researching summer opportunities for you) and you can consult with your Ivey College Coach via email.
  • Your coach will also help you stay on top of things by sending you reminders about your assignments and alerts regarding upcoming sessions.

Strategic Advice and Help: Your Ivey Coach will provide you with expert and personalized strategic advice and help on the following critical topics:

  • Providing an overview of the college admissions process with a grade-by-grade action plan of what to do when.
  • Advising on how to develop a standout academic profile — the best courses and programs for you at your high school as well as additional academic enrichment you could undertake to develop your academic abilities.
  • Helping you make smart decisions about the standardized tests and coming up with a standardized testing schedule that is right for you.
  • Identifying activities that are right for you and that will allow you to showcase what admissions officers want to see — passion, talent, initiative, and impact — both during the school year and in the summer.

Resources and Tools: Everything you need to get the most out of working with an Ivey College Coach.

  • A personal, private website to communicate with your coach and collect everything related to your work in one place.
  • A set of curated articles, blog postings, and presentations related to the college admissions process, building credentials, and customizing your high school career to fit you.
  • A team of experts working behind the scenes to support you and your Ivey College Coach.
