Brandywine Learning Center provides custom college counseling for our clients. We offer the following:
One on One Counseling
We will meet with you and your student to begin the college process, creating a timeline for testing, college visits and more.
Birkman Method Assessment
We are a certified Birkman Method Assessment provider. This method assesses personality, social perception and occupational interests. We recommend this assessment be performed during the spring semester of a high school student's sophomore year. This assessment will provide the direction your student needs to begin the college search.
Testing allows your student to zero in on the specific colleges, majors and ultimate occupations best suited according to their personality and social perception. Don't waste time applying to colleges that do not offer what your child needs to succeed. This testing gives a laser focus to your child, narrowing down the career possibilities that best match their interests and talents. This multi-dimensional tool focuses on measuring usual behaviors, underlying needs, stress behaviors and interests to reveal multiple ingrained personality dimensions. This information, combined with a student's academic profile, directs the student in discovering the best match, economically safe careers, the college majors that lead to these positions and the schools respected for these majors.
