College Admissions: A World of Possibilities
Welcome to Zodda College Services - we are educational consultants who open up the world of college possibilities for students and parents. Where we:
- Simplify the college search and admissions process
- Understand how important it is for students to have their voice heard about colleges; we empower them to do that.
- Do not package students. Rather, we identify strengths and then encourage our students to be who they are.
- Identify a range of colleges that match your academic ability and interests, and
meet your financial needs
The College Search Process: Moving from Chaotic to Exciting and Rewarding
Our goal at Zodda College Services (ZCS) is to ultimately find the right college fit to match each of our student's unique strengths, talents and educational goals. And, to strengthen the admissions potential for everyone that we work with.
We know just how stressful and complex a college search can be and how rough the road is. That's why we've developed an effective and knowledge-based process to help both students and parents, one that overcomes the chaos; a process that organizes the search and actually makes it both exciting and rewarding.
You can count on ZCS to provide a hands-on, personal approach that delivers timely and practical results. In fact that approach has earned us praise as "student-focused and parent-friendly."
Zodda College Services works with all high schools students from their freshman to senior years. We have had great success in placing all students including:
- Students in creative and performing arts
- Students with learning differences
Looking to transfer from one college to another? ZCS also works with transfer students.
You’re from out of state?
Whether you live in Massachusetts, in the United States, or even outside of the continental United States, Zodda College Services can help you. You are probably wondering how we can accomplish that without face-to-face meetings. Well the telephone, for one, is a terrific tool and we use it when working with both our in-state, out-of-state and international students. The power of the internet and Skype are other great tools that allow us to be in touch as often as needed throughout the college search and admissions process.
Distance is not a challenge for Zodda College Services and it won’t be for you. We will provide the same quality of service to you as we do with local students. That’s a promise.
Judy Zodda: Ultimately, the Right Fit is Our Goal for You
Judy Zodda is the owner of Zodda College Services and coaches high school students and their families through the college admissions process. She also works with transfer students.
She was prompted to start her educational college consulting business first, because of her knowledge of and credentials in the field of education. Second, she observed that students and parents were narrowing their college searches to only the most obvious college choices. For students and parents, Judy is committed to expanding their horizons when it comes to college choice. For students, she is passionate in finding a college that both fits their needs and matches their talents.
Throughout the college search process, Judy believes in finding the unique talents and gifts of each of her students by guiding them on an introspective journey where their destination is not yet known. Inspired by a Marianne Williamson's quote from Our Deepest Fear , she also encourages each student to believe that they, too, can shine.
"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually who are you not to be? We are all meant to shine. not just some of us; it's in everyone."
