About Next Step College Counseling
Next Step College Counseling (Next Step CC, LLC) helps students navigate all aspects of the college search and admission and financial aid application processes, and skillfully guides them in discovering and becoming viable candidates for "best-fit" (and affordable!) colleges and universities.
Founder and principal Sandra M. Moore, M.A. is a former college admission director and life-long educator, who brings a unique combination of professional expertise and understanding of adolescent development to her practice. She assists students of all ability levels and from all backgrounds whether residing in New York's Hudson Valley or elsewhere. Familes rely on her as a task master, coach, mentor, sounding board, advocate, reality check and more.
Sandra focuses on student self-assessment as a first, essential step toward expanding her clients' educational horizons. She identifies each student's particular learning style and personality as well as interests, strengths and preferences and, accordingly, is able to match them with the most appropriate post-high-school options. Working with students strategically, she helps them to develop distinctive "profiles" and, in turn, to present their best, authentic selves to places where they not only are likely to be admitted and awarded need-based and/or merit aid but also to thrive. Her ongoing guidance and support help to significantly reduce the level of family stress, especially during senior year.
