College & Post Secondary
By learning as much as we can about the student and family, Imy F. Wax & Associates can help identify the most suitable learning environments. Our expertise is not limited to just college guidance but to seeking out healthy alternatives if college itself is not the first post-secondary step.
For the student deciding on attending college right after high school, we can provide unbiased help in wading through the myriad of letters, brochures, videos and catalogs that students collect in their search. Additionally, we support students in developing a cover letter and/or essay that may be requested by a college. Having someone who can understand the process necessary to apply and complete the applications reduces stress for everyone concerned. We help students to understand themselves, their strengths and weaknesses, and their competencies in becoming independent men and women. We act as the student’s guide for the entire college selection. We have expertise in working with both the traditional and non-traditional college bound student.
For those students who may be ready to leave home, but are not looking to go to or live on a college campus, we know of alternative opportunities. We call them “Independent Living Environments” because they are for over 18 year olds looking to leave home and become independent but may still need the structure and guidance they are leaving behind. These programs and places may offer life skills to some who may need it, hands on tutoring, socialization and relationship development to others who may feel awkward with peers. There are many different programs, with different goals. Imy Wax & Associates are very familiar with these options.
