A Holistic Approach to College Planning

The cost of college has increased at an alarming rate over the last twenty years. Most families will spend more educating their children than they spend on purchasing their home. When embarking upon home ownership, we enlist a team of professionals: realtors, inspectors, appraisers, mortgage planners, etc. Yet, when it comes to choosing the right college and making a plan to finance this endeavor, we often allow our teenaged children to make these decisions that can cost them and their parents hundreds of thousands of dollars. Going about your college search without a plan can lead to poor graduation rates and massive college loan debt. This is why hiring a college planner is essential. It can be the difference between not only your student’s success but preserving your retirement.

Our team can create a strategy to pay for college where other traditional financial planners may have less expertise.
