Welcome to our two newest Head Coaches: Becky Bowlby and Mike Oligmueller each with 40+ years of experience!

The mission of the College Coaches is to assist and guide the student and his or her family through the college application process, working as a team and ending with a favorable outcome: “a winning season!”  Our philosophy is to listen to what our families concerns are, and we address them. We serve as coaches — moving the student forward, while encouraging and supporting throughout the game of the college process.

“Each youngster is different. As a coach, you get to know what they need.” – Coach K

The goal is to have the student’s applications put him or her in the best possible light for admission. The process should be as stress-free as possible, and   the college selection experience should be a positive one.

The philosophy of The College Coaches is to find a good fit between the student and the college. The coach strives to get to know each student personally so that she can better match his or her personality and academic aims with the right college.
