College is EXPENSIVE

It's so expensive that 28% of students will drop out of school just because of money, and 3.9 million students will leave school every year with student loan debt and no degree. And. They Still. Have. To. Pay. The. Money. Back.  But it doesn't have to be this way. We can help you avoid the pitfalls that come with paying for a college education.

Our 12-month cohort plan includes "College Funding Strategies," an online, five-week program that coaches families through the college funding process. Weekly content includes live online sessions, videos (in case you miss the sessions), homework assignments, and resources/tools to help you figure this process out. 


Who Is The Program For?

This program is for families with at least one student who is in middle school, high school, or out of high school and applying to college. This is also a great program for families of students transferring between colleges. 

In order to take full advantage of the course, you should be able to commit to a minimum of 7 hours on course content, pre-work, and homework assignments. The cohort meets online once per week during the 5 weeks, in addition to group office hours/chats to provide additional support.
