While Smart Plan For College cannot guarantee admission to any particular school (no one can), our methods and strategies give students and their parents the confidence that they’ve put their best foot forward at the schools of their choice!

How do you get the best results?

  1. Know where you really stand with the schools - both academically AND financially.
  2. Understand the admissions & financial aid policies of each college you’re considering
  3. Build your college list accordingly, taking into account your academic profile and your actual ability to pay.

Of course, while knowing that's what you need to do is one thing; actually getting it done on your own is something else entirely.

So many families derail their college results because they end up focusing on colleges that are never going to work out, financially and/or academically -- and no one ever tells them.  Not their school counselor and certainly not the colleges.

We help our clients get the best colleges for them at the best price possible. And the results speak for themselves.
