Our Difference

For over a decade we have enjoyed traveling all over the country to visit over 100 outstanding colleges and universities of every kind. These campus visits and evaluations have allowed us not only to take the pulse of the constantly changing university system, but also to understand what families are facing across the national landscape of American colleges.  A picture is worth a thousand words " but an inspection is worth a thousand pictures".  Our president Priscilla ONeill is a  member of The American Institute of Certified Educational Planners achieving the high designation of CEP. She is also a graduate of the Independent Educational Consultant Graduate Program from University of California.

Over the last ten years we have focused on "Who is the Student" not the traditional question "Who is the college"
