Helping students and parents to navigate the college admissions process


Admissions 1 Educational Consultants empower college applicants to explore and achieve their goals in higher education.

Admissions 1 Educational Consultants assist college-bound students to discern their academic, co-curricular, professional and social goals, and to identify and pursue a range of suitable university and college programs.

Students working with Admissions 1 Educational Consultants learn how to recognize relevant high school courses, enrichment opportunities, internships and summer programs that will help students to achieve their academic and professional objectives.

We help students to develop, craft and polish their college applications through college essay writing workshops and one-on-one feedback. We do not write the essay for you; we help you to personalize your own unique essay – one that enables you to shine before admissions committees.

Financial aid is an important concern. We assist students and their families to understand and manage the daunting college financial aid process.

Admissions 1 Educational Consultants has at times partnered with local financial institutions, such as Capital Communications Federal Credit Union, to offer their members substantial discounts for Admissions 1 services.

We are based in upstate New York’s Greater Capital District and provide direct in-person college admissions consulting to high school students and their parents in Albany County, Schenectady County, Rensselaer County (including Troy), Saratoga County (including Saratoga Springs), Montgomery County (including Amsterdam), Columbia County and Greene County. We also work with students outside of our region through phone and online contact.

Please let us know how we can help empower you (or your child) to make the best decisions during this life-shaping journey.
