Let’s face it, the college search process can be overwhelming for students and their parents. There’s just so much information out there and it’s hard to know what to do and when to do it.

Each of the links below have helpful information that can make the process just a little simpler. Of course we guide our clients through how and when to use each one. But we have included them here as resource material. Learn more about standardized testing, check out the latest college “rankings”, or take a virtual tour of the colleges you find most interesting.
