It's May, and if you're a high school college counselor, that means it's time for board reports!

If you're feeling overwhelmed by all of the data gathering and number crunching involved, check in with us at College Kickstart. Our new outcomes reporting capability, included with high school counselor subscriptions, makes board reporting painless and gets you out of the weeds so you can focus on communicating insights.

Using a standard export from Naviance, we'll analyze your data and prepare a summary of admission and matriculation results, sliced and diced in a variety of ways to identify trends and provide insights to communicate to your board. 

That includes incorporating the latest available Class of 2022 admission rates and reconciling results with the latest Barron's and U.S. News rankings.  We've even included quintile reporting to let you delve deeper into what's happening by academic cohort.
