BTA works with students who are ready to explore college paths and career opportunities that blend their aptitudes, personality and talents.
As someone who committed my youth and early adulthood to an entirely different passion and then had to discover new interests and purpose that matched my talents and aptitudes when the final curtain fell, I understand first hand the importance of cultivating a professional path that brings our personalities and talents into harmony.
Chris works with students who are ready to explore college paths and career opportunities that blend their aptitudes, personalities and talents. "There is no perfect formula that applies to all students. Each student will discover the timeline and best matches for majors, careers, and education for success."
BTA works closely with students and their families from all over the US to make sure that they successfully find themselves on the right education and career path. We do this by following the IDEAL process which has helped over 97% of my students graduate college in three to four years. My full-service system takes students through high school and college planning, application and essay development, and the final decision process. Chris works face-to-face or virtually (thank you, technology!) with students from anywhere in the country.
If the time is right to discover your path, and you are ready to launch, contact Chris at Beyond the Applause. As an experienced and knowledgeable IEC, she will facilitate a process that works for you.
Beyond the Applause is committed to educating families throughout high school, education and career planning years. We empower students to develop their passion while creating a solid plan for the future. Our education planning process emphasizes finding the student’s IDEAL matches for living, learning and success beyond high school and college. We work with students in grades 8 through 12.
Beyond the Applause facilitates a process for talent and major discovery, education and activity planning, college application and essay review. Students are encouraged to plan, produce and meet deadlines to ensure a productive and successful transition from high school.
