College Expert® provides professional, personalized college consulting. Our goal is to help students and their parents make an appropriate college choice. This choice depends on an in-depth knowledge of the student as well as first-hand knowledge of college options.

We are there to help students prepare the best applications and essays possible to enhance their odds of being admitted to the colleges of their choice as well as be eligible for scholarships.

Few choices have as great an impact as the choice of a school or college. Students and their families often find this decision to be overwhelming and struggle to evaluate options and make wise choices.

Educational consultants counsel students and their families in the selection of educational programs, based on the student’s individual needs and talents. Our educational consultants are IEAC certified. Learn more about IECA educational consultants.
