College Planning Center in South Carolina has gathered a unique blend of experts from the academic and private business sector who are well-equipped to help students devise the best plan of attack for getting into college. Now more than ever, students have to learn how to effectively market themselves to prospective colleges; and, our experienced consultants are prepared to help you every step of the way to come up with an effective admissions approach.

At College Planning Center, we understand the need for personal attention; and, we strive to fulfill that need in each of our clients. From formulating a detailed academic and extracurricular plan for students to helping them line up vital summer internships, our experts are qualified to assist students in a variety of significant ways to help give them the edge they need to succeed in today’s competitive world of higher education.
Christopher brings a fresh perspective to the college consulting field that really resonated with my freshman students. While his understanding of the complicated nature of the admissions process as it exists today was impressive, it was ability to relate his extensive knowledge in a way my kids could relate to that was truly inspiring.— Mary Beth – High School Learning Coach
