An Unparalleled Level of Guidance and Support

By the time a student has reached the end of his or her junior year of high school, parents may have invested thousands of dollars in summer programs, specialized camps, SAT/ACT Prep, tutoring, and even private schools with a goal of their student landing a college scholarship or being offered admission to a top college. However, with the competition for being offered admission to a top college or qualifying for a competitive scholarship at an all-time high, will the investment pay off?

As a recognized CBO (Community Based Organization), we are regularly in touch with our college partners and acutely aware of the competitiveness of being offered admission to top-tier colleges and universities.

Our primary goal in providing students with one-on-one support is a parent’s return on investment. While some college advisers charge over $20,000 to work with families, our fee of $1999.95 is still costly for families that we primarily serve.

The table below illustrates the return on investment for students now attending college on a full scholarship as a result of matching to the right colleges or for the right scholarships.

Our personalized one-on-one guidance and support is designed to get a student across the finish line by engaging in a comprehensive process of review, assess, and recommend:
