Guiding your student beyond the application.


Getting into college is just one part of the process. More focus should be put on finding the right fit for the student, and on preparing them to be successful once they are in college.

From our clients.


"Kristen's support made all the difference.

She has just the right combination of skills – so encouraging, excellent information, and keeping students on task without too much pressure. By the end, I know that (our student) felt really comfortable with their options and knew that everything would be just fine regardless. The whole experience was a confidence builder. I don’t know how we would have survived without Kristen." -Amy W.
