At The College Navigator, we guide high school students and their parents through the entire college process. Our overall goal is to maximize the student's college experience while minimizing the cost of college. Through proper cash flow planning we can help the parents to financially plan for not only their current high school student but also for all siblings.
A sensible, well-planned approach to the management of expectations can enhance the student's experience and protect the long term economic stability of the parents.
For the 2010-2011 academic year, the average cost of tuition (does not include room and board) of a private four-year college was $26,273 (over $100,000 for all 4 years) and a public four-year college was $7,020 (over $28,000 for all 4 years)*. College is one of the largest investments you might make in your lifetime.We have the experience and tools to guide the college-bound student and parents through the college selection, application, and admissions process while protecting the family's financial goals.
Choosing the right school for the individual student while paying the lowest cost ensures that the student graduates on time allowing them to start their career sooner and with less debt. The cost of attending one additional year of school could equate to as much as a loss of $580,000** of potential savings by retirement age.
Our 90 minute presentation has been delivered to hundreds of people in libraries, schools and corporations. We cover topics such as:
- Which test should you take—the SAT or ACT?
- Career selection and Majors that will fit the student
- Selecting the right college
- How, when and where to visit a college
- How to pay for it
We educate you in "the business of college."
