PRO BONO

At CLC, we believe in equal educational opportunity. As such, we also offer our services pro bono to a number of particularly promising students especially from Greek Public Schools that have no counselors, and/or come from low-income families. CLC Educational Institute offers pro-bono need-based services to selected students who will benefit from the guidance and admissions expertise provided by our counselors. Throughout the years, we helped dozens of underrepresented students gain admission to their top choice colleges and CLC’s team motto of offering ΗΕLP ΤΟ ΑΝΥΟΝΕ WHO NEEDS IT, is dedicated to continue doing so.

NETWORK

A strong network that we have created from our alumni students who attend graduate or postgraduate programs or are already on the job market. The CLC Network is accessible to all our students for answers to queries that concern them, for guidance and tips on their preparation, and to form an overview of the universities they wish to apply to. We value greatly our network which for 23 years now is more than willing to guide and mentor our students, by one to one sessions.

How Collegeboard’s cancellation of SAT Subjects/essay impacts international students.

CLC
Students in the United States have AP Classes, Honors Classes, Societies, Clubs, and access to hundreds of extracurricular activities (including internships, work for pay, volunteering, research projects). On the other hand, students in Greece have very limited access to such extracurricular activities mentioned above (especially the students who attend a public school) and no Honors, AP classes are offered. So how our students will compensate for the lack of subject tests? Where will the emphasis be placed during the admissions’ decisions?

How to craft a perfect USA University List (without visiting the campuses)!

CLC
2020 has been one of the most challenging academic (and not only) years. The Covid-19 pandemic has paused many activities and students are the ones who lost many chances for summer schools, university exploration, and campus visits. The lack of physical presence and attendance of campus tours has created therefore a confusion to the university applicant when it came to deciding which universities they should apply to and which universities would be a good fit for the academic, personal, and professional skills.
