As the International Director of C.A.R.E.™ PLUS, Kelly MacLean leads the team for this exclusive program.
As the parent of an ex-D2 student-athlete Kelly understands that every parent wants the very best opportunities and college situation for their kids. Kelly brings over 20 years of coaching, college recruiting, admissions counseling and scholarship expertise that truly impacts students’ lives beyond high school and college; the life skills and decision-making tools that can transform their journey. Kelly and her team become part of each family, coaching students on how to learn, how to study, how to achieve their academic potential while discovering their true goals as a student and athlete.
All of this is accomplished with a strengths–driven approach and comprehensive plan to help students demystify college selection and career planning.
Kelly’s resourcefulness has been sought after for years since successfully guiding high school student-athletes to earn Division I and II scholarships. She has collaborated with professional athletes to help inner city students understand recruiting, NCAA rules, etc. Schools such as Kent State University have engaged her presentations, and the Ohio Society for Certified Public Accountants recently tapped her to present ideas and insights on financial aid at their annual CPA convention. As a top contributor for STACK magazine, Kelly unveils information regarding NCAA rules, eligibility and scholarships. She is also a member of Ohio Association of College Admission Counselors, NCAA Compliance Forum, Women in Sports and Events, and Association of Sport Coaching Education.
The success of her students can be contributed to the holistic, yet uniquely tailored and relentlessly thoughtful approach. It is not just about improving ACT/SAT scores, or gaining admission to the perfect college, or getting recruited to play sports; it is the total package. Kelly and her team of mentors are invested in piecing the journey together for students during high school and throughout the college transition, ultimately into adulthood and a career that are both satisfying and rewarding.
That is empowerment!

Session 5: Covers the English grammar rules that are tested on standardized tests. Instead of this being a dry, English-y sounding (participle, gerund, appositive…), we provide applicable, easy to understand rules that are tested throughout both the ACT and SAT. We provide materials for the class, as well as homework, for students to continue to master identifying the rules being tested and applying the strategies to answer questions correctly.
Session 6: Covers the problem solving concepts which are tested – in the Science section of the ACT – and the critical thinking in natural science and social science in the Reading section of the SAT. We teach students to accurately evaluate graphs, tables and charts, analyze the information and draw conclusions – on subject matter they may never have been taught before! We spend time on how to break down questions to determine the right answer. We will provide the materials for the class as well as homework for students to continue to master the strategies we have taught.
Session 7: In the third session we will cover the math tested on both the ACT and SAT. This session will also cover breaking down word problems to determine what is being asked and then setting up a math problem with just the information given. This session will cover identifying math problems as well as teaching curriculum that students have not yet had. We will provide the materials for the class as well as homework for students to continue to master the strategies we have taught.
Session 8: Covers the Reading section of standardized tests. We discuss proven methods to increase comprehension during timed tests as well as working on strategies to determine the correct answers by understanding what the question is asking for and answering appropriately.
