About the Program

  • Who is private coaching for?

    Completing college requirements in high school can be tricky. Our private coaching is for high school parents who want expert support and guidance through the entire degree completion process.

  • What if my teen has learning challenges?

    We've had enormous success helping students earn a college degree who otherwise may not have been able to. We can help you identify low-stress, self-paced, learn-at-home courses that build 75%-95% of your teen's college degree under your guidance and with accommodations.

  • How old should my teen be when we start?

    Students of any age can earn college credit, but degree planning and completion work best if your student is in high school and at least 16 years of age or older.

  • Can I accelerate my teen's degree?

    Yes! We'll guide you through course completion options that cut down the time it takes to earn a traditional college degree.

  • What about PSAT, SAT, or ACT exams?

    If you choose one of the 12 colleges we recommend, there is no admissions testing required. Other colleges may have admissions exam requirements.

  • Is my information, or my teen's information, shared with others?

    We respect your privacy and do not share your information with anyone.

  • How long is the program?

    Our relationship with you starts immediately and continues until your teen graduates from college.

  • Does private coaching save me money?

    We're confident that you'll become an educated and well-informed homeschool guidance counselor by the time you've completed all 9 courses, but that's when our mastery kicks in. From that point, we'll make sure you're not only saving money, but saving the MOST money possible on the degree you're targeting. We're confident that we can save you tens of thousands of dollars in tuition - if we can't, we'll give you a full refund.
