What will you study? Where should you apply? How will you afford it?
Welcome! Sorting through college admisions and financial aid is no simple matter. I’m so glad you stopped by. We’ve worked hard to put together information, tools, and programs which will truly aid college bound students and their families. The questions above are big questions and deserve respectful attention, careful exploration, and considered answers.
My Class of 2013 students received over $100,000 in scholarships each, on average. There is money out there for college. You just need to know where to look and how to be prepared to collect it. My clients get out of college in four years, not the national average of six years, thus saving their families in excess of $50,000 each, in addition to being ready to earn money far sooner than their peers. There’s preparation during high school that enhances that outcome, too. Take a look around the site, and give us a call for an initial consultation to discuss your situation and how we can best serve you. We look forward to serving your family.

Premier Student Preparation
Savvy College Selection
Preparing a child for college can be incredibly stressful – course selection, career path discovery, test prep, sports, leadership, community service, character formation, college selection, admissions… It can easily become a four year long head-ache! And then, there’s the cost of college!
Our clients have expert guidance, every step of the way, tailored for each individual student’s particular goals, dreams, and situation.
Meanwhile, we also work with you to create a funding plan. College expenses do NOT have to interfere with your lifestyle! You don’t need to clean out your retirement savings! Don’t take out loads of student and parent loans! The average graduate has $25,000 in student loans – that is $500/month they will have in bills on top of all the normal bills when they graduate and are starting out. Parents have an average of 2 kids – that’s a lot of college to fund. THERE IS A BETTER WAY!
We provide expert knowledge for all aspects of the journey to college for families like yours all across the USA. From homeschool, to public school, to private school, students benefit tremendously from our program. Teaching the skills of success, empowering young people, and aligning the funding so abundance flows are our specialties.
