Academic Consultation

You and your student will get all the help you need to designing their remaining high school studies. During this consultation, you’ll plan out their dual credit journey, making sure your student’s coursework lines up with their goals. At the end of your student’s time with CollegePlus: Prep, you’ll attend a second consultation to help you build a high school transcript that will ensure smooth transition into college.

Academic Life Coaching

Navigate

These are all extremely relevant questions to a young person working through high school, and they’re important topics to work through before stepping foot on a college campus. With your input and the help of their Coach, your student will use the online Navigate program to analyze their strengths and weaknesses, interests, talents, and passions, and build an actionable plan for what they want to do after college. This will allow them to set concrete goals and avoid wasting time as they pursue their dream job.

Online Applications

Our online applications were designed to equip your student for their future. We provide everything they need to make sure their transition from high school to college is a smooth one.

Critical Reasoning helps your student sharpen their thinking and reasoning skills, ensuring they are able to operate on a college level.

Study Skills (optional) help your student advance their reading and memory capabilities. Applying techniques from world-class speed reading and memory hacks, these techniques and abilities will help your student get the most out of their studies, and save time in the process.

TrailMarker is a flashcard application designed to assist your student in studying for competency-based exams. This resource will help them better structure their study time and make sure they’re sufficiently prepared for college-level testing.

Comparative Worldviews will walk your student through the process of evaluating what they believe and why they believe it. Over six weeks, John Stonestreet will help them understand the three major worldviews, what they teach, and help your student’s faith become their own. (And they’ll earn 3 college credits in the process.)

Earning Credit

Competency-based exams allow your student to earn college credit by simply taking the equivalent of a final exam. Instead of having to re-arrange their high school studies to attend extra classes, these exams allow your student to study and test when they’re ready to. Due to the condensed format, high school students are able to work through topics that line up with their current curriculum, seamlessly combining their high school and college credits.

Starting with courses that are most appealing or familiar to your student, they will learn how to study for these customizable tests and earn credit that counts for both college and high school.

Cost

Time

Purpose

According to The CollegeBoard, the average cost of one semester in the 2014-2015 school year was just shy of $11,000. In comparison, spending 2 semesters working through the CollegePlus: Prep program (and earning a reasonable 18 credits in that time) would cost you less than $3,000.

The best part is your student will be earning college-level credits for course topics that are already part of your high school plans. By enhancing these courses with college-level study guides, your student will earn college credits without significantly altering their workload.

There’s more to preparing for college than just credits. By utilizing Navigate and Academic Coaching, your student will finish high school with a bang by knowing who they are in Christ, having a plan for where they’re headed, and building the skills needed to get there.

"Prep has really helped me get started on my college degree, I am now much better equipped to get my degree quickly and efficiently. I really value the studying and critical thinking skills."

Timothy Rankin

"CollegePlus provided a way for me to knock out a good portion of my college studies while still maintaining flexibility for whatever direction God was calling me to."

Rusty Martin

"Navigate really helped me see the common thread running through everything that I was doing in my life.. Before, I was sort of floating, trying to figure out how the Lord wanted me to use the experiences He had given me. About halfway through, everything clicked. Truly awesome program! Can't recommend it highly enough."
