Package Benefits

For a personalized, comprehensive college preparation experience with a college consultant, we recommend trying one of our packages.

With single services, all communications are logged and billed separately. With a package you’ll receive unlimited contact with an Independent Education Counselor via email, text, or Skype calls. We also make use of online planning software for scheduling, tracking milestones and progress, and reviewing documents.

Our packaged services include discounted rates. The extra communication opportunities allow College in 3-2-1 to create a more personalized service for you, letting us get to know you and your needs better.

All Comprehensive Packages Include: Unlimited emails and calls with the student in person, by phone, or via Skype, according to the communicated operating schedule and schedule availability.

It is recommended that meetings with the student be held in the offices of College in 3-2-1, but other arrangements can be made. Purchasing a package also gives you and your family “dibs” on scheduling time slots for in-person meetings!

Packages do not include travel more than 25 miles from Clemmons, NC. However, we welcome clients from anywhere in the world through the use of virtual meetings and online communication tools.
