College Admission Programs

Education Unlimited -

College admission is one of the most significant milestones in a student’s life. Excellent preparation and informed support can make the greatest difference in realizing a student’s future aspirations.

Education Unlimited pioneered the concept of comprehensive summer college admission preparation in 1993 with our groundbreaking College Admission Prep Camp, a residential program that helps college bound students with SAT prep, college counseling, and essay writing instruction. We have since expanded our admissions prep offerings to help families find the CAPC that best fits their needs, schedule, and budget.

Diverse Options Education Unlimited offers three different version of our College Admission Prep Camp of varied intensities, locations and prices, so families can choose a best-fit program. Explore the links below to learn more about which program best suites your family’s needs:

Why choose Education Unlimited’s College Admission Prep Camp program?

  • Education Unlimited's CAPC offers more than twice the SAT preparation offered by any other competing program.

  • Students have the opportunity to intensively concentrate on SAT preparation without the distractions of school year assignments, clubs and activities.

  • Personal Statement instruction is not an afterthought but a significant part of the daily schedule. Students receive one-on-one advice and instruction from the best English educators, in order that they may complete this portion of their application by the end of the program.

  • Instructors live on campus with the students as supervisors and mentors. The professional bonds made between faculty and students facilitate a close-knit community unlike traditional school.

  • Students make new friends from across the nation and around the world!

  • With the guidance of college counselors, participants tour area universities, meet college students, and ask admissions representatives questions about life on campus!

  • Students learn to prepare for an interview with admissions officers from any of their top choices.

  • Student to teacher ratios are small: 1:10 in writing classes and no more than 1:15 in other units.

  • After camp, students leave with a personalized college admissions timeline, flash cards, practice tests, a college essay, list of target schools and a clear vision of how to get into the college of their choice.

  • Students have fun! With excursions to boardwalks, shopping malls, movie theaters and sporting venues, Education Unlimited programs balance academic rigor with amusement and adventure.
