The College Process

A Comprehensive Approach


Freshman, Sophomores and Juniors

In reality, the college process begins freshman year when students choose their courses and begin to engage in extra-curricular activities. Then, as sophomores, in most schools, students take the PSAT’s. Generally, by spring of sophomore year, students start thinking about preparation for the SAT and/or ACT exams. The summer between sophomore and junior year is a key time for test preparation. It is important students keep their grades up as they start juggling a full load of upper-level courses, extracurricular activities and preparation for the tests.

At New Vision Learning, we help students every step of the way. And we keep the timeline in the front of our minds so that students and parents know exactly what to do when. Here is a list of the services we provide:
