Making the overwhelming easier!

Homeschooled Students

At College Planning 101, we navigate the college application and admission rules and compliance procedures so that your homeschooled student gets into their preferred colleges. We know what guidelines to follow, where and whom you should get your transcripts from, and how they must be compiled. We can explain why extracurricular activities are so important and who you should ask for letters of recommendation from.

We use the same Student Positioning Program for our homeschooled students as we do for high school students. This program is designed to help students find colleges based on social, academic, and financial compatibility.

Student positioning also helps families qualify for need-based and/or merit money from the colleges. The more merit and need-based money your child receives, the less their student loan payments will be upon graduation. We work with your student to find out what their strengths are and what careers are best suited for those strengths.
Are you the parent of a homeschooled student? If so, homeschooled students face different criteria for getting into college. We can help with this process!

Student Positioning Program for Homeschooled Students

The philosophy of “Student Positioning” was developed in response to the rising cost of higher education and the increasing use of enrollment management principles.

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.

We started with the College Planning 101 staff in 2014 with my daughter being a Junior in High School. In every aspect that she needed guidance and help each one of them was there for her. It made things less stressful for us. As my daughter had questions throughout college and literally after getting her masters degree the team has still been there for her! Thank you College Planning 101 for being so professional, patient, courteous and also still there for her!!!

Stephanie has taken so much of the stress out of the process of not only finding and applying to colleges, but also figuring out payment and scholarship options. Without her help my dad and I would've been completely lost. Not only did she provide guidance before I even began applying to colleges, she also continues to be of aid every year when it came time to fill out the FAFSA and apply for financial aid. She quite literally has helped my dad and I save thousands of dollars throughout the entire process in realistic and doable ways. Paying for college can be extremely stressful, Stephanie has absolutely helped in making it less so.
