You have one chance to get this right for your student.
Whether it's getting into the right college, choosing the right major, or (toughest of all) paying for it, we know what you're going through.
It's a tough process. It can be confusing and intimidating, but worst of all, at some point you realize that you don't know what you don't know.
We can help. Please see below for an overview of the college planning services we offer, and please contact us for a free, no obligation evaluation of your personal situation. We can meet in person or online.
Please note: This is not a pre-packaged, generic software program that you just download and run. This is a process in which we will do much of the work, but your participation and commitment are critical. We will be working with you personally, face to face or together online, to prepare your student for a great college career.
