The College Process is Built to Overwhelm

The secret is out: Colleges have intentionally created an overly complex system. You’re supposed to feel like…

  • You have no room to negotiate
  • You’re a total failure as a parent if your child doesn’t go to their dream school 
  • If you don’t pony up the cash (even if it puts your own future at risk) you’re letting your kid down

And that’s all before realizing that the entire college planning and admissions process will likely take at least 200 hours of your time (who has that?!).

Colleges want you feeling anxious and overwhelmed to the point where you give up and just accept whatever they offer.

We help you turn the tables.

It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

At College Planning Institute, we empower families with a holistic approach focused on setting students up for lifelong success in a way that doesn’t require mom and dad to sacrifice their own financial future.

We do this through a simple 3-step process:

  1. Fit – We’ll identify careers and colleges that align with your student’s passions, culture, and goals to put them on the best path to success.
  2. Finish – We’ll increase the probability of your student graduating in 4 years or less with multiple career opportunities by 86%.
  3. Funding – We’ll reduce the impact paying for college has on your lifestyle, cashflow, and overall finances—both now and in the future.
