A Parent’s Point-of-View
“You can go on and see what your child’s been doing and keep track of what’s happening. I think it is beneficial to the independent education consultant to have parents involved even if they are just quietly watching from the background. It makes the experience just that much more valuable.” — Susan

AND have fun going through the process of planning for college!
Planning for college should not be a sprint, but a process—jump on board and lets get started.
To find the best "fit" college, students must dedicate time and energy to self-assessment, their situations, and their personal and professional goals—and then identify schools that best meet their needs.
There are over 4,000 colleges and universities in the U.S. alone.
The average student-to-guidance counselor ratio is 450 to 1.
And given the cost of higher education today, spending a semester, year, or more at a school and/or in a major that's a poor-fit may serve as an expensive mishap.
Students experience an average of 42 minutes of one-on-one college planning advising during their four years in high school. Forty-two minutes. Total.
The college planning process may be taxing and sometimes stressful, but it's worth every minute. Take the time to find yourself at a best-fit school—enthusiastic about learning, excited about relating to new peers, professors, and environments.
