For 8th, 9th, 10th Graders and Parents
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail” – Ben Franklin
The PrepMaven Discovery & Planning Consultation is led by our co-founders and is designed for 9th, 10th, and 11th graders (and their parents/guardians).
The goal of this meeting is to help your child become the best version of himself/herself. We help students understand the qualities that will make them successful in life, not just academically. Our approach also sets your child up for college admissions success.
What makes someone unique/distinct/interesting? How important are character and concern for others? What are admissions officers really looking for? What things should my child be focusing on? What should I be doing and when? We’ll address all these questions (and more) in our consultation.
In just 1.5 hr session, we will work with you and your child to:
- Re-frame your perspective about college admissions
- Set personal goals and evaluate strengths, weaknesses, and interests
- Help you put together a plan of action for academic excellence and extracurricular distinction
- Teach you a framework for approaching college preparation that you’ll be able to use after our workshop
Who will be leading these consultations?
Our consultations are led by co-founders Kevin Wong and Greg Wong. They have over 20 years of education experience and have helped thousands of students.
Greg and Kevin were engineering majors at Princeton and had successful careers as strategy consultants and hedge fund operators. They now apply their data and research-backed problem solving skills to the college preparation process.
Over the years, Greg and Kevin have worked with an increasing number of private clients to dispel misconceptions about the admissions process and to create comprehensive strategic plans.
Their unique approach places a heavy emphasis on personal development, character, and service as key components of college admissions success.

Why is parental (or guardian) attendance mandatory?
This meeting is designed for BOTH you and your children. This program only works if everybody is on the same page and working towards the same goal.
By incorporating your child in the planning process, they will also develop a sense of ownership and self-motivation. As the parent, your job is to guide and support your child as they execute their plan.
