| the future is now |
Being admitted to college is more competitive than ever, especially with changes in admission criteria. Holistic review has decreased the value of merit-based scores, making it even more challenging to stand apart from other applicants.
Dr. Villaflor, award-winning educator and CEO of Break Through Potential, discusses the "unwritten rules" in college admissions and how your decisions may affect your student's ability to be admitted to top universities.

Investing Now May Save You Later
Many parents are uncertain about spending money to prepare their students for college, especially at this age, which is understandable. Starting younger is a change in mindset, one of the ways Break Thorugh Potential disrupts the admissions process and helps students succeed.
Students are overwhelmed by the process, and I have many parents of 12th graders who find me and are at their wit's end. I had a student telling his parents he was doing fine and then one day asked if they could hire someone to help him. He was so lost; he hadn't done anything at all. We had three weeks to complete what should have been done over nine months, and it's these situations that we want to avoid but are all too common.
Some parents believe, since they have been through the college admissions process, that they have enough knowledge of the school's resources to help their students, and for some, this is true. But most people do not realize how much college admissions have changed in the last decade, specifically in the past few years. Additionally, we are experiencing a growing college crisis, and our work addresses some of the causes which could save you money.

We Bring the Resources to You
End the late-night Google search marathons looking for the magic bullet, but instead, it leads to online purchases, Facebook fatigue, more things on your to-do list, and additional questions.
Peace of Mind
Stop worrying about how to stand out in the college admissions process or if you and your student are doing enough. Instead, feel confident that certified educators are leading your student with decades of experience helping students be admitted to top-tier schools.
Getting in touch with someone at your student's school can be daunting, receiving a response, if at all, days later only to have a follow-up question. Or being redirected to another person after another person or receiving contradictory information. This can slow your progress and your ability to make decisions in a timely manner. Break Through Potential will be your personal resource, providing responsive communication whenever you need it.
Our approach helps students understand the purpose of their education, making it more meaningful and resulting in improved academic achievement.
