Our goals are to educate you early in the college funding processes, show you the mistakes to avoid, start the planning while you still have time, and show you how to fit your college funding issues into your long term goals. Including retirement! College Planning is a crazy convoluted world of rules and deadlines, a maze of monetary minefields and topsy-turvy guidelines: Some (not all) mediocre students get everything they want and the most deserving of students never seem to get a break.
And I agree, this is unfair and unnerving. Your high school student, who is worthy and hardworking, wants to go to college. And you? You are conscientious parents who know it’s the best next step for them and you are determined to do what ever you can to see them succeed. You’ve searched websites online, maybe picked up and glanced at a college handbook or two, possibly attended a Financial Aid night at the high school.
And reality has just set in – “Now not only do we have to figure out what are the best school for our students’ needs, we have to work hard to get them admitted. And we’re going to have to pay at least a small fortune, or maybe a big one, so that our kids can attend college.”
Anyone hawking college information can show you how to do it by giving you a list of items to complete. That’s easy. But how do you know that you & your college-bound student are doing everything correctly? Face it: anyone can give you a list of deadlines or a list of top schools. That’s the easy part. And parents have overpaid for them. But we’re here to show you how to avoid certain common mistakes that most parents make and walk you step by step through the college application process. We want to work with you as early as your child’s sophomore year (to prepare them from the SAT and ACTs) all the way until they are accepted into the college of their dreams (and even afterward). Finally, we want to provide you with all the necessary resources and instruction to SAVE MONEY and lower your out-of-pocket college costs.
