Let's get your unicorn the mentor they need to succeed


How We Mentor The Unicorns Of Tomorrow

At College Shortcuts, we take pride in helping unicorns get accepted into the college of their dreams based on the dreams and vision for their future. We take the following steps to support your unicorn every step of the way.

Step 1

Welcome and Onboarding

We are super excited to get working with your student! What we do is welcome your family to the College Shortcuts family. We will do an initial intake form to get all the details we need to ensure we know everything about your family and your student.

Step 2

Pairing Mentor To Mentee

We are excited to set your unicorn up with a mentor on our team who loves working with unicorns they can motivate, education, and ignite their visions and passions in life.

Step 3

Capstone Project

We know your unicorn is still figuring out their way. We will create a capstone project together that aligns with their vision for life.

Step 4

Academic Career Guidance

We want your unicorn to know which classes to take, how to manage their time, how to stay motivated, and build their academic profile.

Step 5

Extracurricular Activities Learning

In order to keep your unicorn unique, our mentors will build a customized plan of extracurricular activities in school, outside of school, and summer plans that will make your unicorn stand out and have a unique admissions angle later on.

Step 6

Finding Your Passion

We will ensure your unicorn is aligned with their passions in life. We know when a unicorn is super passionate about something, you can barely get their attention to do anything else. We use that energy and channel it into their passion. This lights them up and get excited about their future aspirations.

Step 7

Make An Impact

There is nothing that will make your unicorn stand out more than giving back. College Shortcuts has donated over $60,000 towards Virgin Unite and Village Impact for global educational initiatives. We love teaching unicorns the power of perspective, giving back to their communities, and coming up with creative ways to do this to ensure they are unicorns who are pushing humanity forward.

Step 8

Mindfulness Training Resources

Because unicorns are still developing their pre-frontal cortex, we offer resources for growing unicorns to help manage their stress and anxiety. We know that at times, unicorns can get stuck on the side of the road, and our mentors are here to nudge them back onto their path through mindset/motivation strategies.

Step 9

Leadership Opportunities

Unicorns who take charge always stand out. We will find unique ways for your unicorn to take leadership opportunities either in school or outside of school to ensure that they learn the skills and traits of a leader to lead them into the next chapter of their life.

Step 10

Summer Planning

While most unicorns may want to play on Instagram or Snapchat, we want to have them fully immersed in activities and camps that make them step away from technology and fully experience their summers. Students come back from summer activities finding their passion, igniting a new level of energy for the school year, and excited to start the next year with a fresh start!

Step 11

Monthly Reporting

While all of our mentor calls are done between the mentor and unicorn, we want to make sure our unicorn parents are in the loop. In our software, we will consistently update our notes from each call so you know what we are doing with your unicorn throughout our program. Also, if you have questions, you can always put them into the software and our team would be more than happy to answer your questions.

Step 12

Monthly Accountable Mentorship

We have found that when unicorns have consistency, they reach their goals. We are excited to get started with your unicorn and helping them to stand out in their journey in finding their passion, exploring their unique gifts and talents, and inevitably flying out of your nest into a new home that feels like the right fit for them. So, what are you waiting for?

We've helped over 25,368 unicorns get into their dream school. Will your unicorn be next?
