ZCS' services follow:
1. Comprehensive Services Package (High School Junior & Senior Years)
Considered ZCS' gold standard, these packages fall into several categories for the general student population, student athletes, creative and performing arts students, and students with Learning Disabilities. All inclusive, it covers every factor that enters into guiding the student and family through the college search and admissions process, including financial aid. Judy provides a report that details what a family can expect to pay at each college depending on “demonstrated need”, calculated by each college according to the family’s individual financial situation. She also pays a third party to fill out the FAFSA and CSS Profile at the schools which require that form.
The college research and placement process for student-athletes and those in the creative and performing arts is even more rigorous than it is for other students. Therefore, they are served through this comprehensive services package. Click here to read case studies about students Judy has helped in these categories.
