College, Career, and Life Readiness Resource Center

The look on your child’s face when they open an acceptance letter from their dream school is an unforgettable moment. Unfortunately, relying solely on in-school academic advisors to lead your child to this moment is not enough. These advisors are often spread thin due to being responsible for over 400 students per school year. To make matter worse, homeschooled students do not have direct access to a college advisor.

For this reason, we have spent the past 8 years helping over 4,000 students navigate their journey to college admission. We will give your child the one-on-one guidance they need to put their best foot forward during the biggest transition of their life.
