Send your kid to the best fit college for them.

With five and six-figure scholarships and aid so you pay less for that college education.

How would much easier would college be if...

  • Your child was at a great school they loved
  • The college gave you scholarships and aid money
  • You didn’t have to drain your savings or live on rice and beans to make your student’s college dreams a reality

Last year, 100% of our clients were accepted at 92% of the colleges
to which they applied.

And they received an average of $303,000 in scholarship offers
-- per student -- from the colleges.

That's money they don't have to borrow or pay back.

Our clients get NOTICED and get IN to colleges they LOVE.

And get MILLIONS in scholarships.

Every Year.

Curious about what's possible for your own student?

If trying to answer college questions like....

  • How do we find schools that are going to be a good fit ?
  • What questions should we ask?
  • How important are SATs and ACTs? 
  • How can my kid stand out from the tens of thousands of other applicants in the admissions office?
  • How can we save on the cost of college?
  • What are schools looking for?
  • How can we get scholarships?

Getting noticed, getting in and getting money from colleges shouldn't involve guesswork.

Having a successful college experience is a science, not an accident or luck.  There is a system that produces predictable results.

Lots of acceptances, with good scholarship and aid offers is possible for you.  Even if you don't see it just yet.

Your colleges are out there.  We help you find them and help you showcase your student so they see your great kid. 
More acceptances and more scholarship offers are all the proof you'll need.

I'm Going To Save Well Over $200,000 On The Cost Of My Son's College Education!"

I've so appreciated all of your help throughout the college process.  The results were way beyond my expectations.  Thanks to you, my out-of-pocket college expenses have been reduced by 84%!

There is NO WAY we would've been able to manage the process and achieve these results without you.

More important than the significant savings was the time you spent helping him identify his strengths and colleges that would be a good fit.  The process is pretty overwhelming.  Having someone who knew the colleges and knew how to speak "their language" made this a lot easier!

I Got The Answers I Needed.  My Daughter Got The College She Deserved!​

Jean Keller [and Smart Plan for College] helped me tremendously with my daughter! The whole college thing is so confusing that, by the time I figured it out on my own, my daughter would have been graduated and married by then.... I'm raising a daughter, I work full time, I'm in college myself.  There's no such thing as "free time".  In my world it does not exist!  I wanted specific answers to my specific questions that matched my specific needs.  And the web wasn't going to give me that but Jean and her team, could, would and did!"

  • Hope is NOT a College Plan

    This time of year is very frustrating for me. Frustrating and heartbreaking.

    Not because of my clients… actually I’m THRILLED for my clients. They’re getting college acceptances and five and six-figure scholarship offers.

    It’s frustrating because I’m getting calls from folks who are NOT my clients.

    The calls sound like this…
