Our Mission

We work with students to identify colleges where they will thrive. This involves spending time investigating potential majors and careers, working through the college applications, developing a strong college essay, planning out SAT/ACT testing strategies, plus so much more.  

We target colleges that offer the best financial aid and scholarships and create an individualized
