What is an independent educational consultant?
An independent educational consultant (IEC) is a non-biased third party with admissions experience and training who can help families focus on pre-college planning and all aspects of the college application process in an organized manner to reduce anxiety and stress and meet deadlines.
Why consult with an independent educational consultant when you have a college counselor at school?
Harvesting Scholars complements your local school counselor’s efforts by working one-on-one with you more frequently to develop a customized strategic plan of action to achieve college choices that best meet your academic, personal, social, and financial priorities. We have flexible yearlong schedules and are available to help you.
Most high school counselors simply have too many students (national ratio: 431 to 1) to give the kind of individualized attention necessary, particularly for application to highly competitive and selective colleges.
Will you write the college application and scholarship essays for a student who is not comfortable in representing themself?
The college application and scholarship process are student-centered. While we will assist a student with brainstorming essay topics, the student will be the sole author of all essays. We recommend that students began drafting the essays months before the application deadline, so the work can be reviewed multiple times for unintentional elements before submitting them.

Do You Guarantee Admission and Scholarships?
No. Harvesting Scholars nor its affiliates guarantee admission or acceptance to any school or institution of higher education or to any job or intern placements. We are a resource that connects you to information to help you navigate the college entrance, admission process and career options. We do not make recommendations to any establishment, school, college, or university. Harvesting Scholars partners with all accredited institutions worldwide.
As each student's path to college is unique, we work with families to develop customized plans to achieve the best secondary and post-secondary education options for the particular needs, talents, and abilities of the individual. Harvesting Scholars can support families through either a one-time meeting or a series of consultations. Group sessions and workshops may also be arranged. For more information on current rates, please contact us.
Harvesting Scholars counselors hold professional memberships in the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) and subscribe to the principles of good practice of both the National and Southern Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC, SACAC).
We accept no compensation or special consideration from schools, test prep services, tutors, lenders, or financial aid advisors in exchange for referrals.
Harvesting Scholars is a consulting company that provides 8th-12th grade students and their families one-on-one pre-college planning and admissions counseling. The goal is to offer insightful advice and provide information that is relevant to students through face-to-face, in-person meetings or videoconferences, and regular contact on all stages of preparing for and applying to colleges and universities.
Harvesting Scholars counselors work with a restricted number of clients each year so that each student can receive guidance and encouragement to complete tasks and stay on track. As needed, we will refer families to vetted professionals who specialize in various fields of education, test preparation, athletics, performing arts, learning differences, adolescent psychology, and certified financial planners.
Harvesting Scholars advises families all across the USA on pre-college planning, from early explorations to application strategies to acceptances and final choice decisions. We counsel families and students in real-time to help design a plan tailored specifically to your needs. As each family will have different requirements for assistance, we can consult through the choice of a single meeting or a block of consultations. We can also conduct group sessions and workshops.
