Rajani Rao:

College Planner


Rajani has invested over two decades in making a positive impact on the lives of young people. Her philosophy of celebrating the uniqueness of each student has helped college-bound teens set achievable goals and take steps toward realizing their full potential. Her passion for education extends beyond the classroom as she recognizes the importance of personal stories in shaping students' educational journeys. Her extensive experience in developing creative projects for her students – projects that involve working with nonprofits, engaging with hi-tech industry, or diving into arts and crafts, culinary science, and other programs – guide her as she motivates and inspires students to recognize their intellectual passions and pursue projects that can be key to demonstrating their character to colleges. Rajani encourages students to use a hands-on approach to explore their interests by engaging in a variety of activities, from athletic and arts programs to summer programs on college campuses.

With a Master of Business Administration from California State University, Sacramento, and a Master of Science in Biotechnology from the University of Massachusetts, Rajani's experience and skills are unique. She easily connects with students and parents alike, having navigated three very different college paths with her own children.
