Areas of Practice
college application consulting
The mind of a teenager can be as opaque as a solid block of marble. Foley Fellows are experienced at peering into this opacity to help students come to better know themselves. While most clients engage FCP services as they consider prep school options for their seventh grader, Foley Fellows are available to work with students as the reach the end stages of the college admissions process: selection & application, college board test planning, school visit planning, essay writing and editing assistance, and interview coaching.
Professor Foley worked as a Director or Kaplan, then The Princeton Review for almost a decade. SSAT, ISEE, COOP, the MCVSD exam, SAT, ACT, and SAT Subject tests: we have them all dialed in. Professor Foley takes test prep to the next level by going on retreats with his academic colleagues who work for the College Board and other testing agencies. We know where these tests are now ... and where they will be tomorrow.
College prep Advising
Every student follows a unique progression through his or her learning path. To help a child realize his or her potential, is preferable to begin a relationship with a student aiming for the uppermost colleges in eighth or ninth grade. To help develop healthy, strong students, Foley Fellows work very closely with clients to develop academic course plans, college board testing plans and preparation, summer program selection, and other experiential learning opportunities.
A strong connection between a tutor and his or her student makes an incredible difference a student's success. Our exceptional tutors are selected for their depth of content mastery as well as the ability to connect to students.
We have content specialists in Mandarin Chinese, English Literature, Reading, Writing, Mathematics: Pre-Algebra through Calculus 3, All High School level sciences: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science. If you do not see a subject that you are interested, please enquire.
prep school admissions consulting
There are a growing number of options available for primary and secondary education. From traditional boarding schools to online academies, we will educate you on all the options and help you select and apply to a program that fits.
Off Piste, Experiential Learning
From volunteer opportunities in China and Costa Rica to internships at famous tech companies, we will guide you through the whole process. These experiences can help any college application shine, but be prepared: there is no guarantee that the CEO of the company you intern for will give you a recommendation. Colleges are wary of any experience that smacks of "pay to play."
