Frequently Asked Questions
College planning should start when high school starts. Beginning early enables your student to plan their Freshman & Sophomore years to set them up for success later, when college planning goes into full swing. It also allows your student to spread out their college planning tasks over years instead of months or even weeks, which decreases their stress—and yours.
Choosing a college is one of life’s most important and impactful decisions. Provide your student with the most opportunities, so they get the most from their college careers. Many families don’t hesitate to invest tens of thousands of dollars and months of time in their students’ sports or other extracurricular activities. By contrast, investing in your student’s college application process will cost far less time and money and will result in significant savings in the long run—and it won’t even clutter up your garage with unused tee-ball tees or model rockets.
