These are just some of the ways Next Step CC, LLC provides outstanding value:

Focuses on the unique needs, abilities and interests of your child. Sandra M. Moore, M.A., begins with a comprehensive self-assessment in which each student's learning style and personality as well as particular abilities, needs, interests, talents and preferences are identified. She uses the knowledge gleaned from these exercises as a road map to help students set and reach goals.

Provides an individualized, step-by-step program for navigating the often confusing (and sometimes overwhelming) college search and application process. Sandra Moore works one-on-one with students and in a systematic way, ensuring oversight of both "big picture" issues (including cost and financial aid concerns) and essential details. Indeed, Sandra leaves nothing to chance! Whether you prefer a little or a lot of hand-holding, she makes sure you get what you want and need.

Welcomes a diverse clientele. Next Step CC, LLC successfully serves a wide-variety of students, including high achievers, "average" students and those who have not yet found their "niche." Families come from throughout the Hudson Valley and beyond, and from both public and independent school backgrounds.

Clarifies strengths and builds confidence. Sandra gently guides students through a process of exploration that enables them to grow as individuals while creating a unique profile that presents their best authentic selves to colleges.

Always available to address your questions and concerns. Next Step CC, LLC schedules meetings around YOUR schedule, is accessible by phone, email and Skype and ready and able to assist your student throughout any or all of the high school years.

Significantly reduces stress. Through careful planning and ongoing assistance Sandra Moore keeps students "on track" and, as a result, helps to promote family harmony during this typically tense and uncertain time.

Fosters happy and satisfying outcomes and, in doing so, saves you a considerable amount of money! While it is impossible and unethical to promise particular outcomes, the professional services of Next Step CC, LLC help students achieve their goals.
