Get Expert Help Step-By-Step With a Virtual Class Once a Week…and Be Done in 5 Weeks!

While your student is home, we have a way to help them GET AHEAD with college. That way, when summer hits and our lives begin to return to “normal”…your high schooler can enjoy their time.

Ensure that your student gets college applications done – and done well – by investing a little time NOW before things ramp up again with school in the Fall.

Here’s How We’ll Help You Get It DONE!

Our 5-week virtual program allows your student to FEEL PRODUCTIVE during these uncertain times…and get the Common and Coalition Applications COMPLETED with confidence.

The College Application Virtual Camp is a LIVE, online, instructor-led program for rising high school seniors that makes it easy to complete college applications NOW, while they have the time at home.

There is no nagging, no panic, no procrastinating. We’ll walk you step-by-step through the entire admissions and application process.

We’ll teach you how to write a killer college essay: we’ll help you find your own voice and story. Even better, we’ll have your essay reviewed by an actual Admissions Officer!

You’ll craft an admissions resume and learn how to properly showcase your accomplishments on the Application.

We’ll help you fine-tune your college list; we’ll teach you about funding and financial aid and walk you through the various applications to make sure that you maximize every scholarship opportunity.

Meet Peter and Carla

Peter Ratzan, Co-Founder and CEO

Peter has been helping students prepare for college for more than two decades, first as a high school social studies teacher at Ransom Everglades School in Miami (his alma mater), as a guidance counselor to 12th grade students at Temple beth Sholom in Miami beach and since 2007 as the owner/operator of Your College Concierge. He has personally helped more than 1100 families (and counting) successfully navigate the college process (and stay sane in the process).

Carla Holness

Carla Holness is a professional with more than 20 years experience in higher education. After many years working in Admissions at both public and private colleges, Carla transitioned to the “dark side” (Student Loans). She continued her work in higher education on the financial aid side of the house as a professional with Nellie Mae, Sallie Mae and SunTrust. A shift in the student loan industry gave Carla an opportunity to return to the wonderful world of admission where she had the opportunity to continue to assist students and their families with the process of choosing the right college or university.
