Helping Students Make Smart College and Career Choices
Youth College Connections in Concord, Massachusetts, has prepared students to make career choices and write college application essays for more than a decade. Former clients are more than pleased with the outcome of our full range of university admission services, and we measure our success by our clients' successes.
YCC has coached students toward acceptance to their top choice, best-match colleges. Our clients have gained acceptance at undergraduate and graduate institutions (often with scholarships) to: Harvard U., Brown U., Rice U., Syracuse U., Fordham U., NYU, Northwestern U., UCLA, USC, Bates College, Bucknell U., Bentley U., Elon U., UVM, Rutgers U., Emory U., Columbia U., Drexel U., McGill U., and many others.
Karen and her colleagues helped my kids 'think big' and achieve their dreams. We are so grateful for their hard work and dedication!
