College Choice Planning

Every child is different

Every child is different

Do you have a high school student struggling to find their way in the complicated college landscape?

Is your child trying to get noticed by athletic recruiters?

Are you worried about the rising cost of college?

We can help!

Our Unique Approach

With so many colleges to choose from, students and parents can feel overwhelmed. As a Mom of four very different kids, I can certainly relate! Our mission is to help families make the right choice for the right reasons, and give your kids the best chance to achieve their college dreams.

We will identify the options for your child based on a set of proprietary criteria. Cost, size, distance as well as educational fit are all considered.

When it comes to the financing, we will help with funding plans, FAFSA information, potential scholarships, and overall ways to cut college costs.

Most importantly, we work with your child to actively engage them in the decision making process. We outline the financial impact of their choice, and help them plan for the eventual loan repayment.

Starting as early as Freshman year, we will outline goals and objectives to meet, both while in high school and through their college years.

Have an athlete? No problem! We have extensive experience in athletic recruiting, and the consistently changing rules.
