About Us

College planning assistanceThe concept is simple. Find the best education pathway to match a student and family’s post-high school goals.

A match that connects academic, personal, and career goals and is affordable!

Easy, right?

As parents, we know households are stretched thin, especially during the 11th and 12th grades.  Sports, social activities, dance, academics, theater, and work, among other things, place enormous demands on time and resources. Those are just the students. Far too often, college planning gets pushed to the back burner.

At Get College Going we work to advise and guide parents while coaching and counseling students. Using a 360-degree view of the process, we help manage deadlines, review strategies, and answer questions before they become stressors.  

We’re proud to be the choice of students and parents close to home, work,  and virtually throughout the US.
