  VIRTUAL AND IN-PERSON COLLEGE ADMISSIONS CONSULTING  

 
 

ABOUT

Apex College Services was founded by Chad Van Soest, an independent educational consultant with over 15 years of industry experience. Chad thrives helping high school students find their top college matches through virtual and in-person coaching. The Apex team honors the monumental decision of choosing a college, and strives to provide top-notch navigation through the undergraduate college admissions process from planning to enrollment. Initial sessions will explore personality and strengths inventories, career development goals and personal values as well as academic and extracurricular pursuits. Together, these form the basis for a personalized college fit. From this firm foundation, the student and consultant will collaborate to curate a list of colleges and universities. With their targets in sight, the student will hone their applications, personal statements and essays with the aid of their Apex guide. We aim for each student to experience the utmost success and satisfaction at their college of choice. We look forward to meeting you and guiding you through this exhilarating process!
