What We Do

Planning for college can seem daunting and complex. Where do families and parents begin? There are deadlines, task and funding questions, and how to decipher the unknown.

That’s where we come in. We understand that whether you’re a parent of a middle-, high school, college-age student, or working adult, creating and managing a plan sometimes requires help. We’ll guide and advise parents while we coach and counsel students. Along the way, we bring clarity, calm, and peace of mind to the college planning and funding process. 

Everything Begins with a Conversation 

Step One—Scheduling an introduction call is the best way to start. We can discuss where the planning is now, what’s going ahead, and how we can help. We’ll answer questions, share insights, and discuss Get College Going’s holistic approach, fees, and what goes into a successful working partnership. Yes, it is a partnership directly tied to helping to meet a student’s and family’s goals. If we’re a fit, we’ll get started.

Step Two – The kick-off meeting is a chance to review a student’s academic and personal profile and check readiness, goals, and expectations. We’ll discuss how financing plays into the process, future decisions, and resources.  

From there – We meet monthly to complete tasks, assignments, and applications and adhere to deadlines. Sometimes, there are two virtual meetings a month, and other times, there are more. Meeting notes are written and shared; we communicate via text and email anytime. Everything we do is tied to a student calendar in and out of school.

The ultimate goal is to find the right education pathway for the right reason, at the right school, and at an affordable cost for a family.
