A Few of Our Students’ Acceptances

CollegePathways believes

that every student deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential in their academic, professional, and personal lives, regardless of their socioeconomic background or learning style. To make this belief a reality, we offer comprehensive support and resources to guide students through the complex path post-high school to college, career, and beyond.

From career path guidance and college admissions counseling to financial aid assistance and specialized guidance we help fulfill students’ dreams through our comprehensive counseling approach. From internship discovery support to research opportunities, and coding experiences to social good projects, tutoring, and test prep – our comprehensive platform supports a student’s needs both inside and outside of the classroom. We are committed to helping students overcome any obstacles that may be preventing them from realizing their full potential. We firmly believe that every student deserves the chance to succeed and CollegePathways is the stepping stone for students to change their communities and the world.

The Ripple Effect


While students cannot control the socioeconomic barriers that their families face, access to expert guidance for college admissions and career guidance expertise can help change the trajectory of their lives and set the precedent for generations that follow. With CollegePathways, students and their families can gain valuable insight and support as they navigate this important transition in their lives and utilize support that empowers change for their collective future.



Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders, innovators, entrepreneurs, and policy-makers. Regardless of their background or social circumstances, every student deserves an opportunity to achieve their full potential and be the change to make the world a better place. We believe that equipped with the necessary resources and assistance, students can move on to higher education, career path success, and beyond, creating a ripple effect that will continue to make an impact on the generations that follow.
Empowering students from all backgrounds to pursue diverse career opportunities and higher education and beyond is crucial for building prosperous societies both locally and globally. By investing in career guidance and education for all, we can break down systemic barriers that have long hindered progress and open doors for individuals to reach their goals, leading to a more competitive and prosperous economy, and a society that is equitable for the future.

Empowerly helped me get accepted to MIT Launch summer program (<10% acceptance rate), start my own environmental nonprofit, and intern with Dr. June Flora at Stanford University. I worked with Empowerly on over 50 essays and finished all of them by November. I was accepted to Columbia, Duke, Carnegie Mellon, USC, and more. I also have a deeper insight about my career and the impact I want to make in the world.



I wish my parents knew I was very grateful for their help. However, sometimes they should trust me a little more because this is my future, and I want to make sure that I do my best to make everything work out the way I want it to.



As a parent of three teenagers and a counselor, you might think that I would have coped better with college application stress when my son applied to college,” Claudia said. Nonetheless, once “spring was upon us, college decision announcements continued to trickle in… my nerves were through the roof.” She concluded: “To those who may also be struggling with the stress of college admissions right now, know this: You’re not alone, and you deserve support.



The whole process, if I had to do it myself…” Sonia paused. “I don’t think I would have done it by myself, just looking for what’s out on the internet. So it’s an investment, investing in education. College counselors really help make your application stand out. I definitely give them credit for helping out my kids.
