The College Application System
College Application Assistance at your Fingertips
.......all about the process.......
Who We Are
The CA System is an organizational plan designed to streamline the college application process which is time-consuming and complicated. It provides you with valuable information, tips, templates, and suggestions. It walks you through the entire application process, can serve as an alternate form from expensive college counselors, or can complement their services and expertise.
Welcome to The CA System. It is essential for college bound students to get a jump start on the application process. The process is challenging, tedious, time-consuming, and stressful. Competition among students vying to popular universities continues to rise. In addition, the student pool is larger as there are more “college ready” students, students are applying to additional schools, and because of increased financial aid and budget cuts admission to your top school choice is that much more difficult.
The Value of The CA System
The CA System facilitates the entire application process and will make your life less stressful and easier. Each section is introduced with a description of their purpose and importance. Take time in getting familiar with each document. You will quickly see how detailed each one is. Keep your records current with modifications and updates. Please read the “Application Overview” and “Reminders, Information and Tips.” I highly recommend reading these first. They lay out the groundwork for you.
Impact of COVID-19
The college admissions process is more competitive and complicated because of COVID-19 and has caused a multitude of disruptions for all colleges and universities.
COVID-19 has caused major confusion in higher education. Colleges and universities have been thrown into uncertain waters as they are forced to convert some of their courses to on-line only, They are also struggling with a myriad of other issues, both currently and in the longer-term, for college admission. In addition, high school students and their parents may be wondering how this affects SAT/ACT entrance exams, campus tours, Early Decision/Early Action, financial aid, as well as other important components of the application process.
Detailed specifics, current updates, and how this impacts you and the application process is integrated throughout The CA System package. You need to be aware of the new guidelines in order to present a stronger and more comprehensive admission application package.
Look at what you can do “in spite” of the circumstances. Hopefully, there will be grace and understanding as we navigate through all of these changes.
