Helping Students Find the Right College Fit
I’m Mary Hager of Hager College Consulting, and I've spent the last seven years working with high-performing high school students ( BASIS Scottsdale, Great Hearts Academies and others), helping them find the right college fit.
I hold a Master’s in Social Work and have worked as a counselor in schools and hospitals for over fifteen years, giving me the necessary skills to successfully guide students and their parents through the changing landscape of college admissions.
Also, I belong to the National Admission of College Admission Counselors, The Rocky Mountain Association of College Admissions Counselor and the Higher Education Consultants Association.
My memberships ensure that I not only adhere to the highest ethical standards the industry requires but also demonstrates my commitment to continuous professional development through college visits and participation at professional conferences.
WHAT I DO
The thought of applying to college may evoke feelings of anxiety, confusion and pressure, especially to highly selective colleges.
I believe that working with students 1:1 to fully understand each student’s unique qualities and individual goals is critical in exploring colleges that are the student’s best academic, social and financial fit.
This process doesn’t have to be anxiety-producing or unnecessarily complicated. With my help, students and families take a methodical approach to the college admissions process and in the end, not only will the student have college choices, but also have a much better understanding of who they are and what special qualities they bring to their chosen college campus.
Students who have worked with me have been admitted to the following colleges:
