Welcome to The College Planner

Geri Perkal, The College Planner
Independent Educational Consulting Services

When it comes to choosing a college, your goal as a parent is to prepare your student for success. An independent educational consultant can navigate and bring clarity to the college planning process, helping you to achieve success with the right academic fit for your child and your family. Educational needs are determined by evaluating individual abilities, activities, and interests, along with consideration of a student’s personality and aspirations. An independent educational consultant works on behalf of the family and does not accept compensation from any academic institution for placement, providing your family with a confident, trusted partner.
