Analogy7 is a five-step process critically designed to rectify academic and social failure in middle and high school students. The following are the original five steps:
Step 1: Engage the client in a personal frame of reference relating to a situation / tasks by using an assessment based application.
Step 2: Obtain the client’s understanding by using comparisons, examples, and succinct questions.
Step 3: Acquire feedback from the client to ensure alignment of goals is established and understood for both parties.
Step 4: Align the client’s understanding of real world situations.
Step 5: Develop client specific solutions to address each situation.
Analogy7 believes in partnering with colleges, school districts, and community based organizations to help guide our clients in college, career and personal success. We accept a limited number of clients to guarantee our promise of a "one-on-one" counselor/mentor relationship. Traditional school counseling has a "herd" approach to students, not because they are incompetent, but because they are overwhelmed!
Analogy7 believes in and offers the below personal A - G deliverable's.
A. Providing a personal state-certified credentialed school counselor from grade level 6 to adult.
B. Collaboration with parents and schools by utilizing “best practices” and being available for on-site requested school visits, representation in a parents absence, and providing additional support to navigate the educational process.

G. Supporting students and parents throughout the financial aid and scholarship process as well as, seeking alternative sources for funding.
Analogy7 understands that all of our clients may not be destined for college. There is no “one-size-fits-all” way to achieve optimal change. People all think differently and therefore learn differently. Professional trades are viable alternatives to the popular secular school choices of "college or nothing." We urge all students to consider college. However, college is not for everyone. Some students choose not to apply themselves in that capacity and are willing to apply themselves in other passions that allow a different path of success.
Analogy7 believes in exploring all available options that will allow the “buy in” of parents and students. Our clients ultimately decide where they will apply their skills, talents and desires. Analogy7 helps them excel in that positive endeavor of choice.
