“When college is the next step, you need to understand the truth about how colleges see you and your student. Why? Because you only get one shot at getting this right—and your student’s future depends on it. At College Planning Institute, we help you flip the tables on them to win the college game.”
– Andrew Windham
College Overwhelm is Real
As a parent, you’re likely worried and confused about how you’re supposed to put your kid(s) through college without sacrificing your current lifestyle or financial future. And that’s before we even begin a realistic discussion about how long it will actually take your student to graduate (the industry average is nearly 6 years!) or whether college is even a worthwhile investment.
So what are you supposed to do?! Is there even an answer? Why does it seem like no one else is even talking about this? And what if you haven’t saved as much as you should have? With the shocking statistics on what it actually takes to pay for college, it’s easy to see how even the best planners are worried, frustrated, and stuck in overwhelm. That’s why we developed a better way.
- Since the 90s, the cost of college has soared, increasing by 400%.
- Colleges increase their rates an average 8% a year, doubling tuition every 9 years.
- 93% of Division I college athletes must pay for 50% or more of their college costs.
- Students who graduate underemployed have less than 50% chance of escaping underemployment.
You Only Get One Shot
- Believe your student’s professional school counselor will personally guide you through the college process
- Rely upon the so-called wisdom of parents and other social media suggestions
- Trust your CPA to successfully guide you to the ever-elusive pot of college gold.
Then your kid’s college dream could easily become your worst nightmare.
Are you willing to risk the 18 years of sacrifice you’ve already invested in your child’s future success? And if the numbers don’t work out, who’s stuck paying the bill? What impact will that have on your current lifestyle and dreams of financial freedom?
We have a proven blueprint to avoid the nightmare and guarantee your student has the experience they expect and deserve.

“We’ll Figure It Out Later” Should Not be Your Strategy
When we trust that our kids will simply “figure out” what they want to be when they grow up while away at a big-ticket school, we’re gambling with both their future and yours.
You don’t have to go it alone—which quite frankly leaves the results to chance.
With our proven blueprint to success we eliminate the guesswork, so you can go from hoping that college goes well for your son or daughter to knowing that you’ve done everything in your power to guarantee their success while giving them ownership of their college journey and future.
We can also eliminate that nagging worry in the back of your head that wonders if you’re trading your financial future for your child’s success.
