What to Expect When You Work
With CCA

Ideally, we should meet in-person or virtually once per semester in 9th-11th grades to make sure that your student is on track to reach their goals.
Senior year is the time when the application and financial aid processes really accelerate and we should meet twice per semester to maximize chances for acceptance and aid at all of the schools your student has chosen to apply to.

You can purchase individual sessions for specific services at $200 per session. Families that elect for 4 years of mentoring and advising receive ten sessions at 25% off for a 4-year total of $1500.  Even students who earn just one class of college credit will see a 100% return on their investment. Most students will be able to earn more and increase their chances of earning college scholarships- making personalized advice from Complete College Advising one of the best ways that you can reduce the cost of a college degree!
