“I wish there were someone who could do this College Tour planning for me!”

So exclaimed a friend of founder Janice Caine in the midst of trying to coordinate the plans for an East Coast college trip  with her daughter — all the while trying to hold down a full-time job, figuring out what to make for dinner, and who would pick up the kids from their various activities — never mind that she still needed to figure out arrangements for college test prep and visits to the local high school college fairs.


Many parents of college-bound teens face this same dizzying schedule and frenzy of responsibilities. Add the time needed to manage the logistics for multiple college visits and it’s enough to put anyone over the edge…


Custom College Visits provides a unique college visit planning process that gives high school students and their families an in-depth experience on each US college campus they visit.

Are you considering a summer 2019 road trip with your teen? We have planned many successful summer itineraries, give us a call to discuss the specifics of your parent/teen trip.

Based on conversations with you and your student, all campus activities are researched and planned around your student’s academic, lifestyle and college admissions interests.

Whether you come to us with a pre-determined list of schools or you choose to work with us to develop a list that meets your teen’s criteria, we’ll handle all the details. Learn more about our services.
