College Connect 101
  • We can take the stress out of the 
    college admission process

    What is your "Best Fit" school?


What we do

We are Independent Educational Consultants (IEC) dedicated to helping families navigate the rigors of the college application process. We offer objective advice, access to reliable information, and the kind of individual attention necessary to make an informed decision.​

Finding the right school, college or program can be a rewarding process, but for some families, the experience is challenging, overwhelming and at times frustrating. Few decisions have as great an impact on a student. Families may find themselves at a loss to properly evaluate their options and make appropriate choices. Seeking the services of an independent educational consultant can be the wisest investment a family can make.

For families considering college, the main reason to hire an IEC is our individualized attention and firsthand knowledge of hundreds of educational opportunities. Most high school guidance counselors would like to assist students individually with the college application process, but they have too many students to manage. And, they often have many more responsibilities other than college counseling like scheduling as well as other social and emotional issues that face high school students today.

Our Mission

We are dedicated to taking as much of the stress out of the college admission process and become an objective, third-party, helping you through the process of transitioning from high school and the comforts of living at home to going off to college and experiencing independence. 

We are experts at finding the "Best Fit" school, one that will help foster both the student's academic and social growth.

The College Connect 101 Process  

1. Standard Test Prep

We first give you access to a SAT and/or ACT practice test given in an actual test environment by a proctor. After we receive the results of your testing, we prep on either the ACT OR SAT test which includes (5) individualized sessions (1hr each) instructing on proven test-taking strategies for your optimal score.

2. Build the College List

We create a best-fit college list based on our years of industry knowledge, using data points obtained from the result of our personality profile survey, combined with your academic and extracurricular profile.

Over 95% of our students are accepted into one of their top three schools, because of our guidance in matching them with the most appropriate schools.

3. ,Craft Essays and Complete Applications

Our expert essay coaches will assist you with brainstorming and topic selection. We will also teach you how to develop and craft your personal statement in addition to all of your individual school supplemental essays.

Also, our coaches will walk you through the entire process of completing all of your college applications, including preparing your student resume.

4. Financial Aid Advisory

Lastly, we will work one-on-one with your family to provide assistance with your school-specific financial aid forms, FAFSA, CSS Profile, IDOC documents, Verification Forms, Parent Plus Loans, and also advise on special circumstances such as professional judgments.

Most of our clients are successful in securing additional financial aid based on our industry expertise and knowledge of award package negotiating.
