UCEazy’s 8th-10th Grade Services and Fees
Building a multi-dimensional student
“The question I get most often from parents is how they can better prepare their child, who is in 8th to 10th grades, for the U.S. college admissions process,” said Vinnie Gupta, CEO. “At UCEazy, we believe students need to begin this process earlier and their parents must look at the U.S. college admissions process differently.”
U.S. colleges and universities are no longer focusing primarily on GPA and SAT/ACT scores, when it comes to college admissions. Because of this shift, parents and students need to understand that college admissions departments are placing the emphasis on admitting a multi-dimensional student. For a student to become a multi-dimensional student, he/she must have the proper foundation, and the foundation needs to start as early as the 8th grade.
What is a multi-dimensional student?
A multi-dimensional student is one who has a high self-esteem and is excelling in academic and extracurricular environments to the best of his or her ability. He or she is unique and able to think independently.
Raising multi-dimensional students can be challenging. For parents who were born outside the U.S., this is even more challenging because they:
- Are not familiar with middle schools, high schools and 4 year colleges in the U.S.
- May have a limited view of the career opportunities in U.S.
- May not be fully in tune with the U.S. culture and this creates a disconnect with their children.
UCEazy provides focused solutions geared toward students (and their parents) as they journey through the U.S. high school system and become multi-dimensional students. Our program is unique because it helps students starting in the 8th grade through the 10th grade and is based on years of experience. With more than 500 years of combined experience, our 35 experts (counselors) have varying backgrounds and have guided more than 15,000 students in school counseling and college admissions. These counselors will help your student reach his or her full potential.
