Getting IN

A Parent's Guide to Their Child's Future

Get the inside scoop on all things college with Paige – Mom and College Planning Expert.

“As both a college planning professional and a mom of a high schooler who is just about to take the plunge into the collegiate pool, I love and can appreciate the personalized approach we take with each client. We don’t believe in a perfect school solution. It’s not that there’s a “perfect” school out there for your child, but instead we like to find a perfect fit in a great program for each teen. The right fit starts the student off on the right foot, and I love helping families and teens find that fit.”
