Proven Approach

With over 40 years of combined experience, we believe that education is a personal journey.  That's why we approach each parent and student with a personalized experience:

  • Focus first on students' well-being.
  • Enable families to make decisions together, in complete collaboration.
  • Help students experience high school success and happiness which leads to strong college applications.
  • Help students and parents realize that there are many "perfect" colleges.

Start Early - Understand the Options

We believe that the middle and high school years are incredibly formative and important for living a flourishing future life. Decisions during those years shape who teenagers become for the rest of their lives. That's why we focus on the whole child, their well-being, and family harmony through the college planning journey.
