People love working with us

Much of our business comes from referring families. And it’s no wonder — College Coach has a 100% success rate! Every single one of our students has been accepted to college, and 98% of our recent graduates got into one of their top-choice schools, thanks to their hard work and expert guidance from our college consultants.

We know what we’re taking about

Every member of the College Coach team is a former senior admissions or college finance officer from a highly selective college. They read the essays, reviewed the applications, and made the admissions decisions. They know what admissions officers are looking for and what it takes for your child’s application to stand out.

We’re better together

Your College Coach consultant is backed by a whole team of experts. That means, in addition to the one-on-one guidance you receive from your dedicated advisor, you benefit from the collective knowledge of our team; this includes our college finance experts, customer service specialists, and cutting-edge data and technology to help support our strategic advice.

We have your child’s best interests at heart

One size does not fit all. We focus on you — and that means a unique application plan that takes your child’s individual desires, strengths, and dreams into account.

We have resources for everyone
