At Merit, the College Advisor
guides students through the process of undertaking their own project—the kind that will build character and dazzle admissions committees.
Throughout this process, students meet with their College Advisor once per week (in person or online
) to discuss the project and to learn how to implement the next step.
Not only do the students become independent thinkers and receive public recognition for their projects, they also learn leadership skills that will last for a lifetime.
