Synergy Associates was formed in response to the demand from students and families to have individualized help with college planning. With more students than ever applying for post secondary education, colleges and universities have been faced with the task of finding ways to differentiate students and to evaluate their applicant pool. This, in turn, has resulted in the admissions process growing more complicated and difficult to manage.
Throughout the process, Synergy aims to demystify college admissions by offering gentle support and guidance to parents and to students seeking admission to all tiers of college. We understand and appreciate that no two students or their circumstances are the same, no matter how similar they may look on paper; therefore, our counseling is aimed at helping students distinguish themselves and accomplish their specific goals.
With an understanding of the public and private schools in Chester County (and surrounding areas), and our knowledge of the vast majority of colleges and universities to which our students apply, Synergy is able to help students and families successfully navigate this process. With the proper planning and counsel, and a commitment from the applicant, the college admission process can be enlightening, fulfilling, and one in which all students experience success.
