Where Some of Our Academy ‘23 Alumni Are Today
Coming into The Crimson Coaching Academy, I was extremely stressed about applying to college. I had good grades and scores, but knew nothing about how to make myself stand out. All three instructors helped me write my personal statement and fill out the entire Common Application, and it felt so good to be ahead of the game going into senior year. Not to mention I got into my dream college!
As a rising senior, I didn’t know what to expect from The Crimson Coaching Academy, since I wasn’t quite in the thick of applying to college. The instructors were very smart and helped me make a “game plan” for the rest of my high school career: when to take standardized tests, what extracurricular activities to expand on, etc. I gained a lot of knowledge from the week I spent at Harvard, and I am shocked that I can actually say that I am looking forward to applying to colleges.
If I had to give one reason for why I am attending Harvard, it would be the Crimson Coaching Academy. All of the instructors are very knowledgeable about the college application process, and helped me build an application that showcased my strengths and unique abilities. I couldn’t recommend it enough to anyone who is about to apply to college.
Should a student be accepted to The Crimson Coaching Academy, the sticker price of the program is $1,500. This includes all instruction, activities, lunches, and mentorship. But generous Financial Aid is available via application once accepted.
Yes! We will make sure cost will never be a reason why you can’t attend.
