We Want What's Best for Your Student

The college selection process is an exciting journey filled with opportunities. It’s a moment that carries significant financial considerations, but it also offers a chance for personal and academic growth. While it may seem overwhelming, especially for families navigating this path for the first time, we are here to provide guidance and support. nothing short of a perfect storm. A highly-charged moment triggering unprecedented financial implications all wrapped in a blanket of confusion. For most families, these are uncharted waters. 
We serve as a beacon of wisdom and our families come to us to help them balance an emotional decision with discipline, logic, and expertise. They want what’s best for their student. We want what’s best for their child. Together, we are Pathfinders.

“If we could give them 10 stars we would. They are simply the best at what they do and no other college planning program is as comprehensive. The services they provide include, but are not limited to, Career Planning, How to Find the School with the Best Fit, Admissions Support and College Funding. Each student’s experience is unique – for example, our son began the program in November of his senior year of high school. Because of his late start, he participated in what their experts call their “Boot Camp” program. Our daughter, on the other hand, saw first-hand all the benefits her brother was receiving and couldn’t wait to get started. She began the program her junior year of high school. Both children worked hard and were rewarded because of it. They each earned scholarships and because of the funding strategies they learned throughout the program, both will graduate nearly debt-free from out of state universities (son – $1,700, daughter – $4,000). That financial freedom and will allow them more opportunities upon graduation than if they were burdened with student loans. However, the most important advantage that our children received is the confidence in knowing why they are pursuing their chosen major, and what they are “buying” with the money they are spending on college. To us, this is priceless, because so many high school seniors have no idea what they want to do, or why they are going to the college they chose. They are paying thousands of dollars without even knowing what or even if they will receive a return on their investment.”

“Thank you! This is perhaps the best business I’ve come across in a long time...I had interviewed other “college counselling” companies but they didn’t offer the professionalism and decision making structure you offer. As soon as our daughter started the program, my anxiety went down by about 80 percent and I know she felt better. She also made her final decision based on the value framework you laid out for us. We’re smart enough to know we had no idea how to choose a college, and we are immensely happy with the decision Trixie made thanks to everyone.”

“I knew this would be the best fit for Carl and our family after a lot of research, and then meeting in person. The advisors were amazingly patient and encouraging with Carl. He’s on the autism spectrum, which posed some unique challenges in the process, but they were able to provide the individualized career planning and college admissions support he needed.”
