On every college campus, there are a LOT of students whose parents are paying full price.

And there are a select few
who are paying a lot less than full price
for the same college education.

When it comes to paying for college, there are two prices you could pay. 
The price paid by parents who understand how the financial aid system works.   Or the price paid by parents who don't.

Which parent do you want to be?

Smart Plan For College families pay less for their student's college degree.

Last year, our clients received an average of
$303,000 in scholarship offers -- per student-- from the colleges .
That's money their parents don't have to borrow or pay back. 

How would much easier would college be with scholarship money from the college, to help you pay for it?
So you can send your student to a great school
--  WITHOUT draining your savings or taking out a lot in college loans to make it happen?

We show our clients how to get noticed and get in
to the colleges they love.
And how to get MILLIONS in scholarships.  Every year.

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!"
