Invest now for future payoff

The cost of a 4 year college education can range from $22,000 – $50,000 per year. Many students are now attending colleges for 5-6 years! In many cases this is because they made college and major decisions without adequate knowledge of their interests, skills, personality and work values, or information about careers.

This means a student could spend an additional $44,000 – $100,000 while losing $80,000 – $120,000 in potential wages that could be earned by entering the workforce after four years of college instead of five or six years.

Is it worth investing $500 now to prevent risking $120,000 – $200,000 later? Don’t waste thousands of dollars on tuition! We have the tools to help you make informed decisions about your major and career!

Help your student prepare for some of their most important life decisions

Choosing a college major or career can be some of the most important, and stressful, decisions a person can make in life. Throughout their lifetime, most people in the United States will have 8-12 jobs, and 3-5 careers. Most students graduating from high school feel they do not have enough information to make an informed career decision. School counselors are overwhelmed with many responsibilities, and do not have the resources to provide students with comprehensive personal and career exploration.
