Join Fusion Academy Huntington Beach as we host Melinda Kopp, MBA, CEP, to discuss all things college: admissions, applications, due dates, essay writing, SAT vs ACT, financial aid, accommodations, and more! Melinda will also walk us through the things that need to be completed at each level of high school, and answer any questions you have about your specific student.
As the founder of College Safari, LLC and an Independent Educational Consultant based in Newport Beach, Melinda’s mission is to empower students and their parents to navigate the journey to college with confidence. Coached by Melinda, students travel through high school in a process of exploration, purposeful choices, and self-discovery. This is accomplished by anticipating each step, getting and staying organized, and following a structured plan. Melinda provides individualized comprehensive college planning including: high school course selection, extracurricular advice, personality, interest, and aptitudes assessments, college exploration and guided research, preparation for college visits and interviews, standardized testing information and planning, application and essay guidance and coaching, financial aid strategies, and how to make the final decision.
With a 30+ year background in business and education, Melinda has earned the distinction of Certified Educational Planner (CEP) awarded by the American Institute of Certified Educational Planners. AICEP’s goal is “to recognize those professionals who have achieved the highest level of competence and to raise the standards of the educational counseling profession.” Melinda also completed the Independent Educational Consultant Association’s Principles and Practices Summer Institute in Claremont, California, earned her certificate in College Counseling from UCLA Extension with Distinction, and is a Certified Practitioner of both the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and the Strong Interest Inventory.
