WELCOME to Pathways for College

Independent College Consulting

Choosing, applying and entering college is a personal journey that is full of soul-searching questions, tough decisions and a roller coaster of emotions. Pathways for College helps students and parents navigate so they can relax and enjoy both the journey and the ultimate destination at a college that is the perfect fit.

We guide students toward the best decisions for their futures. Since there is no “standard student,” we don’t advocate a “standard approach.” Our goals and strategies are different for each student, tailored to his or her unique needs, interests and aspirations. This personal approach results in a college selection and application process that is revealing, productive and rewarding.
