If you are parents of college bound high school students and even slightly concerned, worried or scared about paying for college, you need a real plan, a college funding plan

Paying for college today can be an expensive, daunting, stressful endeavor…


    • Published college prices are astronomically high


    • What schools think you can pay and what you really can pay, are two very different numbers


    • Financial aid doesn’t cover enough costs


    • Student and parent loans are costly and take years to repay

Paying for college is the second largest consumer purchase (after home buying) for most families. But parents and students are mostly left in the dark about how to manage their college buying and how to protect themselves financially throughout the process.



Too many families are overpaying and overspending on college costs
