About College Confident Prep
College Confident is an innovative college access program with a decade of experience increasing application and matriculation rates for 10,000+ public high school students in New York City. Unfortunately, many schools don’t offer students this level of preparation and guidance. That’s why we created College Confident Prep, an online college counseling program that educates and empowers parents and students to navigate (and ace) the college application process on their own—skillfully, and stress-free. Our tested approach has resulted in thousands of college acceptances, but that’s not the only benefit of the program. Ultimately, College Confident Prep fosters confidence, leadership, and motivation towards economic and social freedom.
