Creating the College Experience – The School Solution

A good college experience is vital to a young adult’s wellbeing. It is a crucial time in a person’s life that can affect their future and determine what the rest of their life looks like. There’s no perfect formula, however, and one size does not fit all. When it comes to designing a good college experience for your son or daughter, finding the right educational environment is imperative.

College Educational Designer

When it comes to creating the best college experience for your young adult, the pressure shouldn’t be all on you. The number of colleges to choose from can feel overwhelming, and it can be helpful to receive professional assistance in the decision making process. College educational designers make it their job to design the ideal college experience for each individual, finding the perfect match for each personality and learning type. Your child is no exception.

If you are wondering if educational consultancy would benefit you and your child, it can be helpful to look at the issues they struggle with. Are their issues accommodated at traditional universities? Learning disabilities, mental health challenges, and struggles with addiction are just a few examples of the issues that require a unique educational approach. Now is not the time to rely on Google searches or word of mouth. A professional in the field can and will find your child the good college experience they deserve.

College Educational Design with The School Solution

Sometimes the perfect fit is just waiting to be found. That’s where an educational consulting firm like The School Solution comes in. The job of a college educational consultant is to help you find the right college for your son or daughter. They are knowledgeable about the many varying colleges and universities around the country, and they are uniquely qualified to find teens the right place for them. The School Solution’s owner, Karen Mabie’s mission is to personally get acquainted with each and every school that she may recommend.

Karen Mabie, a professional Education Consultant and board member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, personally visits schools throughout each year in order to evaluate the therapeutic and academic services they have to offer. Her thorough and passionate work has earned her the designation of “Certified Educational Planner”, the highest level of standards in professional educational consulting.

Our Process

When a family comes to The School Solution for help, we first set up an introductory meeting or phone call upon completion of the intake form. At this introductory meeting, we strive to gain a deep understanding of your child’s unique needs. We discuss social, physical, and academic challenges to better focus our search.

After our introductory meeting, we’ll do the legwork. We extensively review each form and record that have been given to us, as well as interview past teachers and therapeutic professionals who have worked with your child. After this is completed, we identify and contact schools we think would be best suited to your child’s specific requirements. We then bring these findings to you and your family, and together, we make an informed and exciting choice that will bring the best college experience to your son or daughter.

Don’t Wait

When your child is struggling, it is in your nature as a parent to try and take care of everything alone. You don’t want to let anything slip through the cracks, and you know your child better than anyone else. Unfortunately, internet research and word of mouth can often be overwhelming and insufficient when it comes to choosing a college for your son or daughter.

It is always best to consult a professional and allow them to help you find the best solution for your child. The School Solution is here to lighten your load, offering knowledgeable and professional support every step of the way. When it comes to creating the ideal college experience for your child, the time to do so is now. Call The School Solution today: 848-242-0865, or send Karen an email at kmabie@theschoolsolution.com for more information. Connect with The School Solution on Facebook and LinkedIn and sign-up for their blog & newsletter.






We are continually grateful for our introduction to Karen, and all that she has done for us.
