Free College Planning Seminars
Having college planning 101 as an asset through our school search has been nothing but amazing. Thanks to Stephanie and her Coworkers, what should’ve been the most stressful and nerve racking part of growing up became a walk in the park. Sure, we had to play our part but every step of the way and every question, no matter how simple, she was there. From the bottom of our hearts we really cannot thank them enough, and without a doubt recommend their services.
