Our Services

Claster Educational Services guides students and families step-by-step so they are well-prepared and confident as they navigate the college admissions process.

We work with students to develop and highlight the qualifications colleges seek, and to identify schools that will be a great fit. We look beyond rankings and statistics to find colleges where each student will succeed and thrive, both academically and personally.

Our services include:

  • assessing the student’s interests, strengths, needs and goals
  • reviewing transcripts and making recommendations on course selection
  • evaluating and advising on extracurricular activities
  • creating a plan for standardized tests
  • selecting summer programs and activities
  • preparing for campus visits
  • building a college list
  • developing strong applications
  • guiding the essay-writing process, from topic selection to final edits
  • preparing for interviews
  • demystifying financial aid
  • advising on gap year plans
  • supporting a successful transition to college
