Affordable College Admissions Advice for Teens

Now more families can afford tailored coaching, admissions, and scholarship advice for every high school student in the family at a fraction of the cost.   


Parents of high school students have a new, more affordable way to help their children successfully navigate the increasingly competitive and expensive college admissions process.  LifeLaunchr, the life and college admissions coaching platform, and TeenLife, an online resource for academic and enrichment opportunities for teens, have launched TeenLife Coach, powered by LifeLaunchr.



Instead of spending thousands of dollars for a private consultant, TeenLife Coach allows families to work with a virtual counselor at a much more affordable cost.  Packages start at just $49 for a session. Service offerings include a free personalized assessment, summer planning, college selection advice, admissions planning, essay coaching, financial aid coaching, and assistance finding merit scholarships.


“Counseling resources in schools are scarce and sometimes completely unavailable,” says Venkates Swaminathan, co-founder and CEO of LifeLaunchr. "College is a major investment for students and families.  TeenLife Coach, using LifeLaunchr’s tools and services and TeenLife’s extensive database of summer, gap and college listings, fills an important need for families all across the country.”

Marie Schwartz, founder and CEO of TeenLife and mother of two, understands how stressful and overwhelming it is to prepare children for college and life beyond school. “Most schools don’t discuss college and post-secondary planning until spring of junior year” she says. “Being able to speak to someone as early as 9th grade and get affordable advice about career exploration and skill building activities in time to take advantage of them is a wonderful complement to our platform.”
