Phase One Package
It is best to begin Phase One at the end of eighth or ninth grade, when there is more time remaining in high school to implement strategies for strengthening the student’s academic and extracurricular profiles. When a student begins at a later point in high school, tasks for various phases are combined.
The general time range for the Phase One tasks is approximately 4-8 hours, though individual needs may require additional time.
