“Getting into the right school can be a life-changing experience.”
—Chris Parsons, Founder

Most parents tell us they feel overwhelmed when it comes to helping their sons and daughters get into college. The process isn’t what it used to be and competition for gaining admission and financial aid from schools is intense. Plus, kids don’t always know what they want to be when they grow up.

To ensure that families make the best decisions, two things are key: in-depth knowledge of how the college admission process works and the ability to help kids better understand themselves. That’s where we come in. We know the ins and outs of the college admission process and have worked closely with over 200 high school age kids since our beginning. We’ve structured our admission counseling and test prep programs to fully leverage that knowledge. Here’s what we offer:
