At Spark College Consulting, our mission is to get great kids into their top-pick schools while we relieve the stress typically associated with the college application process.
Elizabeth Katz started Spark College Consulting, LLC because she is passionate about helping students have a successful college application process from beginning to end. We help students discover who they are and craft a college list that reflects that insight. We work with students as they write and edit their essays, and guide students through the detailed steps of the application process itself.
Most important perhaps, is the agency we instill in our students. This is THEIR future and it is thrilling to watch them own it!
About Elizabeth Katz
Founder Spark College Consulting
Elizabeth has a B.A. and M.A. from Stanford University and a J.D. from Berkeley Law (formally Boalt Hall) and holds a College Counseling Certificate from UCLA Extension.
Since leaving the law to focus on raising her children, Elizabeth has volunteered extensively in the Menlo Park City School District and at Menlo-Atherton High School. She has been the Co-President of the PTA and still volunteers at Everest Public High School, where she completed her practicum. Elizabeth has worked with students of all ages through her volunteer work with schools, Girl Scouts, church and sports, but she particularly enjoys working with teenagers and helping them as they make the transition from high school to college.
Elizabeth is a member of WACAC and HECA.
“Watching our students take ownership of the College Application and Admissions Process is a joy each and every time. Every year, as the early acceptance notifications come in, I find myself increasingly invested in and nervous for the outcome – More than even I would expect. Each time a text comes in… “Early acceptance at Brown!” as it did just now, it is a thrill and makes me so excited to work with next year’s students. Combine this with the stress-relief our service provides to the parents and THAT’S why I love what we do!” – Elizabeth Katz
You are welcome to contact Elizabeth via phone or email with your questions or request a consultation that fits your schedule. We look forward to hearing from you.
