  • Mission:
  • To inspire students, of all ages, to realize their potential as college bound students. We provide support and empower students with strategies for preparing, understanding and navigating college admissions and financial aid processes to help them succeed in achieving their college dreams.

  • Overview:
  • College Prep Solutions is dedicated to providing college admissions counseling that will allow the student to pursue their post-secondary goals. College Prep Solutions will serve as a bridge for students, of all ages, who desire to attend college. We will partner with community organizations that serve:

    1. Teens who are the first in their families to attend college.
    2. Low income students who assume they cannot afford college.
    3. Young adults, including High School graduates and GED recipients, who desire to attend college.

    Applying to college is not as simple as filling out application and submitting it. College Prep Solutions will help students by:
    1. Providing one-on-one and group counseling to assist with planning for college, preparing for college entrance exams (SAT/ACT), choosing the right college, and financial aid/scholarships.
    2. Assistance with completing college applications and financial aid documents.
    3. College visits to allow students to explore and tour different colleges.

  • History:
  • For over 15 years, I’ve had an incredibly satisfying career helping bright; hard-working high school students get into their ideal colleges. These terrific kids have been a source of tremendous inspiration for me as a guidance counselor.

    But as a guidance counselor and college admissions consultant, I’ve often been frustrated watching low income and first-generation students struggle to navigate the college admissions process and prepare for what is one of the most important steps of their lives – getting into a great college.

    Many years ago, I was a first generation student. I remember the challenges of trying to understand what needed to be done to get into a great college. After having seen hundreds of students in our local high schools struggle with the same thing every year, I had to act.

    I founded College Prep Solutions, a Non-Profit organization, which provides low-income and first-generation students with cost-effective and tailored help to achieve their college dreams.

    College Prep Solutions, Inc. is a nonprofit organization, established in November 2011. We will address the biggest obstacles faced by students applying to college: unsure of college entrance requirements (high school courses, college entrance exams, etc.), intimidation of the college application process, and don’t think they can afford college. Through our programs, students and families will be empowered to navigate the college admissions process.
