Struggling or confused about the college application process? 

TRA’s college application program offers a personalized approach that enables clients to find and apply to the RIGHT colleges for them.


At TRA, we identify the colleges that are the best fit for each client, and then, we ensure that all personal statements and necessary paperwork are completed. In the process, TRA ensures that all clients become highly sought after candidates for all the colleges they seek to apply to.  Our program teaches students these basic college application processes:


  • Offer a personalized approach that enables students to find and apply to the RIGHT colleges for them.
  • Identify a list of colleges that are the best fit for each student.
  • We ensure that all personal statements and necessary paperwork are completed.
  • Get a handle on what can be an overwhelming college application process
  • Develop a timeline to help them accomplish college application tasks
  • Create a college application checklist and portfolio
  • Learn key elements and administrative details of the college application
  • Create a personal profile to help them prepare for personal statements
  • Understand and apply dos and don'ts of the personal statement writing





In the process, TRA ensures that all clients become highly sought after candidates for all the colleges to which they seek acceptance. In fact, the test preparation and college application processes OVERLAP. As a result, TRA clients can get started with test preparation in March of their junior year, get going with college application in July before their senior year, and be done with both by March of senior year. The program is about helping students walk a personalized path that allows them to strive and grow into well-rounded adults who are ready to take on the world!
