College is EXPENSIVE

It's so expensive that 28% of students will drop out of school just because of money, and 3.9 million students will leave school every year with student loan debt and no degree. And. They Still. Have. To. Pay. The. Money. Back.  But it doesn't have to be this way. We can help you avoid the pitfalls that come with paying for a college education.

"College Funding Strategies" is an online, six-week program that coaches families through the college funding process. We offer both a cohort and self-paced model, and weekly content includes live online sessions (cohort), videos (self-paced), homework assignments, and resources/tools to help you figure this process out. 


Who Is The Program For?

This program is for families with at least one student who is in middle school, high school, or out of high school and applying to college. This is also a great program for families of students transferring between colleges. 

In order to take full advantage of the course, you should be able to commit to a minimum of 9 hours on course content and homework assignments. If you are signing up for the self-paced program, you have an entire year to complete the sessions.

If you need additional accountability and support, the cohort provides it!  The cohort meets online once per week during the 6 weeks. Plan to spend two hours per week on course content, homework, and group office hours/chats (although all are optional).

Program Benefits

  • Course Content

    6 weeks of engaging content through videos, homework assignments and more, resulting in an action plan to fund your student's education.

  • One Year of Access

    While the course itself is 6 weeks, you will have access to the platform for an entire year, with new monthly content and our online library of resources.

  • Group Support & Accountability

    Need accountability partners? Our cohort model includes weekly group sessions, office hours, and a group chat to make sure you're up to date on your goals. (Cohort limit: 20 participants)
