Get a headstart in understanding the admissions system! Work with our strategist to set personalized goals and a long-term timeline for admissions preparation!

Kids can’t go to Ivy League Schools — or can they? 🏆🎓

While the majority of college prep programs focus on high school students, we at Crimson Rise stand by our belief that planning for college should begin as early as 11-14 years old.

Why? Our Crimson students are four to six times more likely to gain admission to top-tier universities, so why not start them out at a young age?

By the end of this course, students will have potential university and major/course matches to inspire their journey, a personal essay-inspired writing sample, written analyses of role-model student and career profiles, and personalized academic and extracurricular targets.

As admission rates to top universities continue to drop, it is becoming ever more important that students start preparing early. 🚀

From age 11 onward, your children can prepare for their future by developing the positive study habits, intellectual curiosity, and sense of direction that they’ll need to succeed. 🏆

How to Prepare Your Middle Schooler For College Admission: 3 Easy Tips


1. Develop Leadership Through Interests

Between the ages of 11 and 14, it is vital that parents play a role in developing childrens’ curiosity. As a part of Crimson Rise’s student coaching program, we help children discover what interests them, build up extracurricular activities, and achieve outcome-based academics. Beyond simply participating in activities, our goal is to help your child develop the skills needed to take on leadership roles in school and beyond. Extracurricular activities at Crimson include Coding, a Model UN, Speech and Debate, and more.

2. Develop Soft Skills

As children are beginning to mature and take on greater responsibility, middle school is the perfect time to develop soft skills through parental involvement and guidance. These skills— such as time management, critical thinking, emotional literacy, and self-reliance— are the pillars upon which hard skills—professional expertise— are built. Our program at Crimson Rise is specifically designed to foster soft skills through an engaging and student-centered curriculum.

3. Hone Writing Skills

Much has been said in recent years about the decline in writing skills among children and university students. One of the most important elements of any university application is the college essay, in which students must fluently describe their personal growth, their future ambitions, and their worldview. Additionally, writing skills are vital for success in practically any field— from writing convincing business emails, to communicating scientific findings to skeptical audiences, to writing the next great novel. Crimson Rise’s extracurriculars help to boost your child’s writing through critical analysis, research, and focused attention to grammar and content, preparing them for success in the years to come.
