Unbounded Edge College Consulting
We provide professional skills and knowledge for students and families as they navigate through the increasingly complicated world of college admissions. UECC approaches students as individuals with unique qualities, skills, passions and personalities. We provide tailored one on one services to meet the individual needs of students with the goal of creating an environment that promotes self-discovery and builds confidence in students as they pursue their college dreams.
Unbounded Edge is committed to empowering students and families to learn about educational options that are good matches and to helping guide them successfully through the application process. The primary goal of our service is to help families identify programs where students will not only find an intellectual fit, but where they can also flourish and grow personally.
Our service will provide honest, objective and informed advice and we adhere to the Principles of Good Practice of both the National Association of College Admissions Counselors (NACAC) and the Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA). In addition, UECC remains up-to-date on current issues and trends in education by attending continuing education trainings, summer institutes, and by visiting college campuses frequently.
Founder, Michelle Dixon loves working with high school students and is excited to support their personal growth on many levels. She provides advice about strengthening grades, identifying possible leadership and community service opportunities for students, and encourages students to take creative risks to achieve their potential in the classroom, on the athletic field, and in their personal lives. Colleges are excited by students who have explored their interests, stretched their minds, and actively engaged in their communities.
UECC is committed to advising students and families in a sensitive and honest manner with a personalized and custom approach to college counseling. UECC’s approach to college advising is developed in accordance with a client’s needs and is never the same for every student. We support our clients so that they benefit from not only favorable college admission results, but also an application process that is relaxed and well-managed.
UECC will guide a client from the first days of ninth grade through graduation and provide families with college counseling support at every stage of a student’s high school career. We advise a wide range of students with diverse academic profiles, geographic backgrounds, extracurricular and athletic interests, and college aspirations.
