Are you ready to begin your college planning but not quite sure how to get started? 

It's no secret that the competitive admissions process and increasing cost of college has families feeling anxious and overwhelmed about finding colleges they can afford.  At Compass College Consulting, we are committed to helping families find the right school for their student.  Here is how we do it:

  • Identify colleges and universities that offer the best match based on a student's interests, personality, skills and aptitudes, and admissions profile.
  • Keep the student on track through every phase of the college application process.
  • Help students to craft their personal statements and entrance essays and review applications prior to submission to avoid errors. 
  • Provide financial options based on a family's need and income and maximize scholarship opportunities.
  • Assist students with their time managment and reduce overall stress.

How can we help?

As Independent Educational Consultants, we help students and families navigate through the entire college admission and selection process.  Because we spend 25% of our time touring colleges, meeting with admission officers, and exploring the campus environment, we are able to gain a vast, first-hand knowledge of colleges including their academic programs, campus culture, scholarhships and financial aid, and admissions requirements. This insight allows us to present students with a wider selection of possibilities and provide vital help in weighing factors such as curriculum, environment, and affordability.  Additionally, we help students to stay organized and on task, reducing the stress that often accompanies this process.
