New Haven, Conn. — Turning Point welcomes College Admissions Consultants (CAC), an educational consulting company specializing in college admissions and academic tutoring, to their structured sober living program for young men. With the addition of CAC consultants, Turning Point residents will be better equipped to meet their educational goals and objectives.

As the young men at Turning Point progress through the three phases of reintegration, CAC consultants will help them to create an educational plan and to successfully follow through with it. In order to achieve this, consultants will work one-on-one with each young man and help him

Shannon and Kaitlin Duffy through every step of the college admissions process and/or help him complete a curriculum in order to obtain a high school or college degree. As consultant and owner Kaitlin Duffy explains, "One of the principles upon which Turning Point rests is the importance of work and academics during and following their time at Turning Point. As such, a major component of each young man's work at Turning Point is based upon the importance of setting and reaching employment and educational goals. With the services that my sister, Shannon, and I now bring to the team, these young men will have the tools and opportunities available to them so that they can successfully achieve their present and future educational goals."

Services offered include, but are not limited to, college choice assistance, application and supplement assistance, essay topic choice, essay editing, interview preparation, and SAT tutoring. In addition to these college services, CAC also offers academic tutoring at both the high school and college level across a large spectrum of subject areas.

Consultants and owners of CAC, Shannon and Kaitlin Duffy, both have a solid background in the field, having worked years in the undergraduate admissions office at a well-known university prior to opening and operating their own business. They shared the title of valedictorians of their college class, each graduating with a 4.0 grade point average. Both women have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and are recipients of the President's Scholarship Award, the Alumni Association Academic Achievement Award, and the Joan Phillips Gordon Prize in Sociology.
