CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Jan. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- With an increasingly complex college admissions process requiring high school students to get an earlier start, CollegeVine today announced the launch of a mentorship program especially for high school freshmen. The new 9th Grade program (www.collegevine.com/prepare/mentorship/) is designed to provide that first vital guidance by helping students successfully navigate high school and laying the foundation for a successful college process.
CollegeVine's 9th Grade Mentorship Program, which embraces its signature near-peer model, pairs each client with a personal college student mentor already enrolled at a top university and handpicked to challenge and inspire them. The program's three main components—Structuring, Preparing and Mentoring—are designed to help students establish strong academic and extracurricular profiles, meet all the requirements for admissions and grow as individuals.
The new 9th Grade program will complement CollegeVine's successful existing mentorship program, which provides near-peer mentorship to high school students further along in their journeys to transition to college.
"While we've seen tremendous success through our existing mentorship program with hundreds of clients now attending top universities, we've always believed that we could be helping far more students by guiding them earlier in their high school journeys," said CollegeVine co-founder Johan Zhang. "The addition of a 9th Grade mentorship program reaffirms our commitment to a truly holistic approach to college admissions guidance."
CollegeVine, founded as Admissions Hero in 2013, is a leading provider of one-on-one mentorship, college applications guidance, college essay assistance, tutoring, and test prep. The company features an expansive network of near-peer advisors at the nation's top universities—their experience representing more than 20 different majors, substantial extracurricular activities and far-ranging success.
