Is a Private College Counselor Worth the Money?

College is costly, and some people are hesitant to hire a private college counselor because of the cost. Yet, consider the potential costs you and your child will incur if they make the wrong college choice.

Therefore, the importance of choosing the right college the first time cannot be overstated.

Our college admissions counseling services include customizing a strategic plan of action, which will help your child get into the best college of their choice and meet their academic and personal needs. We work hard to help high school students search with the right group of college schools—safety, suitable matches, and reaches—based on their academic profiles, financial constraints, and other factors. Former students have had an excellent track record of getting into many schools and are usually their first choice.
