Finding the College that is a Perfect Fit for You or Your Student!

"All Your Educational Needs Under One Roof"

In a consultation with School Finders' College Placement Service, you will have the opportunity to get the answers to many questions about the colleges you are considering:

  • Do you want to be in the city, the suburbs, a rural area?
  • How are liberal arts, community colleges, universities, professional schools, and vocational schools different? Which interests you?
  • Do you want a small campus or a large university?
  • Do you need a school with an LD center or other special services?
  • How do you like to learn?
  • Do you want to live on campus?
  • Are the schools you are interested in reasonably likely to accept you?
  • Are your SAT / ACT scores good enough, or do you need to improve?

Getting You Into College

Once you have chosen the colleges that interest you, School Finders will:

  • Contact the admissions office of each college and discuss who you are and "introduce" you to the college
  • Help you with your essay and online or paper application form.
  • Set up a college schedule of visits, deadlines, and necessary application recommendations and materials.
  • Talk to the admissions office as your scores, applications, and other papers arrive to make sure that all of your files are properly maintained and that you are "known" as an individual, not just a number.

GAP or Transition Year before College

Some students are not ready to commit to a four year college and to going away right after high school. School Finders works with students who are interested in a Gap Year experience, part-time work, and community college credit, or on-line learning to help students determine if college is for them. Contact us if any of these alternatives appeal to you.
