I think a big reason my son got into such a good college was the help he received from the advisors on his applications, essays, and SAT. Tremendous!

Challenges Facing Today’s Students

Our education system’s current approach to preparing our nations’ children for their future isn’t working. Too many students go from middle school to high school, and on to graduation with little or no real planning for their future. Students and their families are paying the price of the current disjointed process…

The cost of college is rising; admissions and scholarships are more competitive than ever!

More and more students are competing for a limited number of admissions seats and scholarships.

Student debt is at an all-time high – over eight million have defaulted on burdensome loans.
– U.S. Department of Education

Many students are unprepared and are taking too long to graduate – Over 40% of students are not prepared academically for college and over 60% are taking six years or more to graduate increasing their college cost even more.
– National Center for Education Statistics

Students who enter college unprepared take longer to graduate and are less satisfied post-college – Over half of college graduates surveyed would change their major, their college, or their degree plan.

Challenges and Risks for Today’s Students

Poor Planning Leads to Costly Mistakes for Students and Families

The cost of a degree is rising while college admissions and scholarships are more competitive than ever.

Per Year - Average Cost for Tuition, Fees, and Room/Board

In-State Public University: $25,864
Out-of-State Public University: $43,721
Private University: $53,949

Student Loan Debt is at an All-Time High

$37,584 – Average amount of debt held by students at graduation.

College is costly, not only while earning a degree but also in the years spent paying off student loans.

For most parents, outside of purchasing a home, paying for their children’s college education is the most expensive investment that they will ever make. Yet most parents leave the decision-making process to their teenager with no professional help in choosing their career path, major, or college.

Lack of formal career and college counseling leads to costly mistakes. Students are taking too long to graduate which dramatically increases the cost of their education.

The Reality of Costly Mistakes

More than 60% of students are taking six years or more to graduate, significantly increasing the cost of their college degree.*

This is due to little or no proper college and career planning as well as poor academic preparation in high school.

The difference between four and six years of college can be over $90,000.

In addition, the student’s opportunity costs also increase when they are still in college and not out in the workforce earning a living alongside their peers.

Over 30% of students in college end up changing their major at least once over the course of their college career.*

Changing majors almost always means additional classes which significantly increases time and costs.

This is the costly result of no formal career counseling before graduating high school.
*National Center for Education Statistics

Regret and Failure

Over half of college graduates surveyed would change their major, college, or degree plan.*

The national freshmen retention rate is a dismal 67.2%, meaning that over one third never return to their initial school after their first year.

While high school dropout rates are decreasing, the United States experiences a daunting 32.9% college dropout rate every year.

This is a direct impact of students and families attempting to navigate the high school-to college transition process without professional help.
Most students drop out because they started college without a plan. They did not take steps to confirm their career path, choose an appropriate major, or select a college that was a good fit for them, academically, socially, emotionally, or financially.

Well intentioned and motivated high school graduates end up attending a college that was not a good fit for them, studying for the wrong career, resulting in wasted time and money.

They leave with a sense of failure and unfortunately, many of them never pursue their college dream again.
