gradiant prepares your high school senior to be healthy, confident, independent and connected in college





After my parents met you on day one, they said they knew I was going to be able to find a wonderful caring home in college. They could not have been more right, and so much of why comes back to you. You make every person feel welcome, cared for, and valued. You were instrumental in helping me meet friends and in showing me how deeply we were cared about. Your approach to life is inspirational, and always reminds me that learning goes so much further than the classroom. You truly made college a home for me, and I cannot be more grateful.”  - E.B.

“There is no way I can express all you’ve done for me. You dragged me out of one of the lowest points in my life. I’ve never felt so whole before. Your compassion and wisdom stuck with me throughout the year. Truly, I was so lucky to have you in my life. You made college livable, and you made it my home. You’ve already seen me at my worst, so I’d love to talk to you at my better. Truly, thank you for all the love you’ve shown me this year.”  - A.T.


Dear Parents,

You are inspiring.

As parents ourselves, we profoundly admire your unique sacrifices, your heartfelt devotion, your sweat and tears willfully given during the often unrecognized day-to-day of parenting.

If you haven’t heard it, you totally deserve to...congratulations on the accomplishment of raising your kids!

At gradiant, we’d love to be a meaningful resource in supporting your teens becoming healthy, independent, confident and connected young adults in this next phase of life.

We created gradiant because we want students to thrive in college and feel less stressed during their senior year. We want to equip students with the essential life skills to navigate the opportunities and challenges of transitioning to college; to be informed on and practiced in the most salient issues; and to arrive on campus feeling confident.

At gradiant, we help students learn to live a meaningful everyday comprised of the healthiest context and most supportive community possible. We support them realizing the dreams they have set forth for themselves while being willing to evolve and adapt as needed. We encourage the appreciation of others’ definitions of success while ultimately being able to uncover their own. And that’s just the beginning.

We truly celebrate you and all that you have given to your children to get them to this moment. We would be honored and privileged to partner with your kids as they prepare for this next stage of life.

With warmth and appreciation,

Drew + Amy
