High School Freshmen & Sophomores

High school freshmen and sophomores are in a groundbreaking time of life—not kids anymore, not quite adults, yet their choices can have long-ranging impacts. Smart families consult Creative Marbles experts to help them and their teens define themselves, reducing the risk of missteps due to inexperience when planning for college admissions.


By initiating college admissions planning early in high school, students and families can benefit from Creative Marbles’ valuable insights and expert guidance. We assist families in crafting an individualized college admissions strategy, including an academic roadmap for high school. 

CMC’s experienced advisors can assist families with a variety of issues, including:

   Ensuring students meet academic requirements for college admissions by selecting rigorous courses.

   Selecting enriching summer and extracurricular activities to explore talents and interests.

✓   Answering questions about the ever-changing college admissions process.

✓  Understanding and navigating test-optional admissions policies for their student.

✓  Managing rigorous academic coursework—helping students “learn how to learn”.

✓  Guiding families to reflect on their expectations for their student’s life beyond education.

✓  Advising families with timely tips through CMC’s quarterly educational and college admissions bulletin, FYI.

Families gain peace of mind and make more informed decisions throughout high school, reducing the likelihood of regret in later years and maximizing options for a successful college admissions process.
