Guiding You and Your Student through the Entire College Planning Process!

The college process can be overwhelming.  Just like a coach who helps guide and strengthen your student's talents, My 4-Year Plan comes alongside your family to help give your children vision, navigate the college selection process, enhance admission qualifications and even consider how to creatively pay for it.

"We had the extreme fortune of meeting with Cathy as our son began his college search and application process.  We were completely new to the whole process and knew nothing about the procedures of college planning, or even where to begin.  Cathy was incredibly knowledgeable, and she was so patient with us as we asked her question after question!   She provided us with a wealth of knowledge and information that got us on the right track to getting our son to the college that best met his needs.  Furthermore, she explained the financial aid process (and made that complex task seem less cumbersome) and showed us where to look for the best grants and scholarships to make college a reality for our son.   I'm not sure how we would have succeeded without her help.  Thank you, Cathy".

I wanted to express our gratitude for everything you have done for us so far. You have spent your time, put effort and dedicated yourself not as a college counselor but as a true friend. You, without doubt, went above and beyond, and exceeded our expectations. We really appreciate that.

Cathy's experience and expertise were a huge asset as we navigated high school and preparation for the college search and application process. Her suggestions on majors and potential colleges were valuable. She got to know our student and every nuance of her strengths, weaknesses and goals in a way that no high school guidance counselor could. We can send our daughter to college knowing that she put her best foot forward and made an excellent decision.

My 4-Year Plan was extremely helpful in narrowing down my interests to focus on a major, as well as a great resource for college recommendations, plans, scholarships, and more. If it weren’t for Cathy’s incredibly helpful sessions and advice, my future might look very different.
