At The College Navigator, we provide a comprehensive service which guides our high school students and their parents through the entire college selection/application/admission process. Our overall goal is for our students to thrive both academically and socially while minimizing the expense. Through appropriate cash flow management, we can help parents financially plan for not only their current high school student but also their younger siblings.
Our students saved an average of 56% of the sticker price at private colleges
for the 2013 - 2014 academic year.
For the 2012-2013 academic year, the average cost of tuition and fees(does not include room and board) at a private four-year college was $30,094 per year, $8,893 per year for state residents at public colleges and $22,203 per year for out-of-state residents at public colleges and universities.* College is one of the largest investments you will make in your lifetime. We have the experience and tools to guide college-bound students and their parents through the college selection, application, and admissions process while preserving, if not actually enhancing. the family's financial health.
Choosing the right school for the individual student while minimizing its cost decreases the probability that the student will transfer or drop out and increases the probability that the student will graduate on time, allowing him/her to start a career sooner and with less debt. The cost of attending one additional year of school could equate to a loss of as much as $580,000** of potential savings by retirement age.
Our 90 minute presentation has been delivered to hundreds of people in libraries, universities and corporations. We cover such topics as:
- Selection of careers and majors appropriate to the student's personality and academic strengths
- Which standardized test to take - SAT o ACT?
- Selection of the right college
- How, when and where to visit a college
- How to pay for it without mortgaging your retirement
We introduce you to "the business of college."
