Link Educational Advisors have a ratio of 1 to 25 and are members of the Independent Educational Advisors Association (IECA). IECA members attend conferences, regularly visit college campuses for the latest trends, and are in tune with the world of higher education.

How do Link Educational Advisors work with students?
How do Link Advisiors keep students motivated?
While this is a healthy and natural process of decision making, it’s not outcome determinative. We believe a student’s beliefs about themselves, their hopes and dreams are the biggest motivator that will help them blossom even through the most difficult times in grade school and beyond. So we help them imagine their ideal life and develop a solid plan to help them achieve those goals.
Ideals are ideals for a reason. They’re at times attainable and at other times, feel impossible to reach. But that’s what makes life enriching and our conviction is that those ideals will help students find their path as they become young professionals. Link keeps that goal prominently in the forefront and we help students realize how every decision can ultimately impact their vision.
How long will Link Advisors work with my student?
Link Educational Advisors can begin working with students as early as the summer of their 9th grade year to make certain their high school experience is maximized.
We can also work with students who are already in the trenches in high school. Some may be midway through their sophomore year while others are feeling lost about the financial aid process and personal statements and essays.
You may say that at times, Link engages in “damage control,” when students feel like they are in a bind, up against challenging deadlines all the while juggling heavy course loads in school. Or, we can be the sounding board throughout the entire high school experience, carefully crafting meaningful and happy summers for high schoolers, coupled with volunteer opportunities and helping them decide how best to structure their academic activities to help them shine for college admission counselors.
We customize a plan for your needs.
