With the growing emphasis on college readiness, the pressure is on schools to prepare students for life after high school. Counselors are expected to coordinate standardized testing, manage interpersonal issues, help students plan for college, and help them find money to cover the cost!
We understand the demands placed on schools to prepare students for college, that’s why we have created our ScholarPrep School Program to help streamline your college prep efforts. Our program motivates and supports students on the road toward postsecondary education, while also engaging families and taking the stress off counselors.

The ScholarPrep Organizer was designed specifically to help parents and students prepare for the application process without any stress. Our Organizers include a monthly log, quick tips, and tracking pages for every section a student will encounter on a college or scholarship application. The Organizer is the tool that parents will keep on their desk at home as a physical reminder to sit down with their student each month to do a little planning and goal setting.
“As a mom of three, two of which have gone through the college process and one still in high school, I love everything about the ScholarPrep Organizer. I know how important organization is in the process of applying for college (and scholarships!) and am excited to use the book as a valuable tool while my youngest son is still in high school. Not only is it full of excellent information and timely tips, the organizer is well made and easy to understand how to use. Great job!”

I have at my fingertips a complete system to start and get my daughter’s records organized. With this at my disposal, I am confident that this will not be the chore I have so been dreading. We will be ready! Again, thanks for creating something for parents that is so thorough and easy to follow.

And this is coming from a former event planner turned kinder teacher!! So I get how important organization is! You’ve made this very doable!”
– Beth, Mom of a High School Junior
“This is a fantastic book. It has made the daunting task of preparing for college so much easier! It allows us to keep everything extremely organized. We will never have to second guess whether or not we are missing something. I am so thankful that we got this my daughter’s freshman year of high school!”

How does the school program work?
Examples of the models some of our schools and non-profits have used include:
- Providing Organizers to all incoming freshmen, to be distributed at the beginning of each fall.
- One district worked with community businesses and organizations to cover 100% of the cost to provide books to all of their incoming freshman students.
- Purchasing Organizers to sell back to families at a discounted price at freshman orientation and throughout the year as needed.
- Utilizing Organizers as a college-prep curriculum as part of a current mentorship and college-readiness program.
We are committed to ensuring that ScholarPrep is a success at every school and non-profit organization, so please contact us to discuss a tailored approach for implementing ScholarPrep into your current programs.
Ensuring your students will succeed in higher education and beyond is what you do every day. We are here to make that a little easier for everyone.
