Established in 2007 and located in New Canaan, CT, we are a team of experienced professionals ready to work with you and your child on the college admissions process. Our Clients come to us as they need something more than what their school is offering in terms of service and insight. In most cases their child has a special talent or passion they would like to continue in college. While many of our students go on and play college athletics, we have also worked with dancers, musicians, actors, and even ultimate frisbee athletes.
Please take a look at Our Team page as you will see we have all gone through the college process with our kids. We also feel our corporate backgrounds in a variety of industries (finance, consumer packaged goods, publishing, and Wall Street to name a few) brings us a tremendous "real world" perspective to our advising and mentoring of your child.
If you would like to come in and talk about our process please contact us. We offer a complimentary meeting to allow you to learn more about how we can help you and your child. The introductory meeting typically lasts 1-2 hours. After meeting , if there continues to be a mutual interest going forward, we then provide a written proposal that details deliverables and our fee.
