Here’s what we know: the drive to do it all; be the perfect student, the perfect athlete, the perfect community citizen, all in hopes of being admitted into a dream school leads to stress, overwhelm, and feelings of not being good enough. And year after year, we see students feel bogged down by the number of competing priorities they are pressed to manage.
We knew there had to be a better way to approach high school and the college admissions process, arguably one of the most stressful times in a student’s life. When we couldn’t find one, we created Stonebridge Prep.
According to a study completed by the Pew Research Center, “anxiety and depression are on the rise among America’s youth.”
75% of high schoolers describe themselves as “often or always feeling stressed about schoolwork.”
And 66% report “often or always worried about being accepted in their chosen college.”
