Our philosophy is "guidance through experience," and by that we mean many things.
Experience in the field gives our advice and counseling weight in wisdom. Having both been students going through the college search process ourselves as well as making a profession out of it later in life, both sides of the fence are well-known territory for us. We understand that choosing a college isn't only about getting into the school with the right name—it's about getting into the school with the right fit. We use our experience to not only help you and your children uncover what would fit them best but to also walk them through the process of making a school be what fits them.
Experience also means exposing you and your child to the procedure and process of preparing for not only the college application process but also learning how to successfully navigate the college experience. Acceptance is the first step, after all, and life away from home takes a toll on both the home front and in the dorms. Even if you live close enough to have your child live at home while attending college, there are still obstacles that need to be faced and we're here to help you identify and overcome them. In that way, we give you the knowledge you need to be able to change your college experience into the one you want without needing extra help from others. Of course just as preparing for college doesn't end with the acceptance letter, we'll be there to support you long after the bell rings for the first class.
In the end, "guidance through experience" means using our years of experience to guide you to the knowledge you need to make the right decisions, both during the time leading up to acceptance and onwards.
