ABOUT COLLEGE APP ATTACK

College App Attack is a program created specifically for high school students, in order to guide them through the college planning and application process. The College App Attack Caddy and College App Attack System helps students and parents organize, plan, and prepare for the process by guiding them step-by-step. Our staff of Independent Educational Consultants is also available to help students and parents in our individual and/or group workshops.

 

OUR MISSION:

Our goal is to provide the resources and information needed in order to help students succeed in the college planning and application process. We want to make sure that every one of our members finds a college that fits them socially, academically, and financially.

 

We help you help yourself to streamline your thoughts and keep your application time to a minimum.

 

HOW WE WERE CREATED:

The College App Attack Caddy and College App Attack System were created after several years of research and development. We found that many students and parents are overwhelmed at the amount of information that is required on college applications. For this reason, we broke down our program into 5 main color-coded sections:

 

COLLEGES
TRANSCRIPTS & TEST SCORES
ESSAYS
LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION & RESUME
FINANCIAL AID

 

 

Each of these sections guide students and parents step-by-step through the college application process, providing vital tools and resources necessary in order to be successful and follow through.

 

The College App Attack Caddy and System is the essential guide and organizational program needed before thinking about applying to college.

 

We recommend that students that plan on applying to college start preparing as early as possible, preferably as soon as their freshman year of high school.

Jessica graduated from California State University, Fullerton in May 2010, in a total of 3 years, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish Language and Literature, with a minor in Political Science. During her time at CSU Fullerton, she studied two full semesters in Spain, and became a member of the Phi Beta Delta Honor Society for International Scholars. In 2008 she became the founding President of the “Globe Trotters”, International Studies and Awareness Club at CSU Fullerton.

 

In August 2011, Jessica co-founded and headed the College App Attack Research and Development Team. It was not until May 2012 when www.CollegeAppAttack.com became live. Subsequently, she has continued to work with students and colleagues to update and improve the College App Attack System with the latest college admissions material. “This is an ongoing process”, she said, “a never-ending stream of resources and information”.

She believes that it is important to continue her education in the college admissions field in order to better assist her clients. Thus, after completing the requirements, in 2012 she earned the Independent Educational Consultant Certificate from the University of California, Irvine.

 

Jessica is an advocate for affordable education and believes that money should not stop anyone from achieving his or her aspirations. She has made it her goal to help students find affordable, higher-education, and has made it the mission of www.CollegeAppAttack.com to make the college application process for students and parents an easier, less stressful process, by organizing and preparing them for success.


Francine Mathy

Vice President & Co-Founder

 

Francine Mathy is the co-creator and co-founder of the College App Attack System and Caddy. 
She is an Independent Educational Consultant and received her Certificate from the University of California, Irvine.

 

As an Entrepreneur, she has 28 years experience in Business Management, Marketing, and Strategic Planning.  An avid volunteer and fundraiser, she serves on several non-profit boards in her community and was instrumental in establishing the College App Attack Fundraising program to benefit non-profit organizations.

 

In 2010, she created the first “College App Attack Caddy” prototype when her son began to research and plan for his college applications. This organizational system became a way for him to organize all of the information that he needed for his lengthy applications. Seeing a need for students and parents to have a program to lead them through the college planning and application process, the College App Attack Research and Development Team was formed, in August of 2011.  In May of 2012 www.CollegeAppAttack.com was launched. This system was designed to clarify the planning and application process so students may find the college that fits them socially, academically, and financially.

 

She believes that the college planning process needs to start as early as Freshman year so students can strategize in building their resume and high school record to create a portfolio that will capture the attention of admissions officers. 

 

Our team also includes a staff of Independent Educational Consultants, Teachers, Professionals, and Specialists in the educational field.
