Return on Investment

There's no denying college is expensive. The average cost of attending a public in-state college for a student is $101,948 over 4 years. The average cost for a private college is $212,868 over four years.

Even with the HOPE scholarship, most Georgia publics are going to set you back between $65-85k, if your student lives on campus. If your student doesn't graduate in 4 years, or loses their award, that number will be even higher.

But it doesn't have to be.

92% of my students from the Class of 2022 received institutional merit awards totaling over $6 million.

 These awards ranged from $6k to $281k, with an average award of $75.5k (over 4 years).

I am proud of every single one of my students. They work HARD to ensure they will be successful during the college admissions process. While I do not guarantee admissions to any school, I do spend a lot of time helping them cultivate a balanced list of colleges that align with their priorities. Over the years, my students have been admitted to 160+ colleges in 37 states, plus Washington, D.C., Japan, and Switzerland.

This image shows a grand university building that's three stories tall, has a large brick-paved walkway leading up to the building, and has five columns on the front of the building.

I would like to take a minute to thank you for your work with our son. Giving him the opportunity to look at a large number of schools and then making an informed decision means a great deal to me.  He ended up with a school I would have never have dreamed of and after going to the campus I think he will be happy.  He will be able to graduate without student debt if he keeps on track; this is exactly the outcome we are looking for. Hiring you was the best money we EVER spent!

-M.P., Parent, Class of 2021
