24 Jan We Can Help to Plan Your Teen’s College Tour
Junior and Senior Years of High School are Hectic!
We understand how hectic your teen’s junior and senior years of high school can be — fitting in a full day of classes, several hours of homework, college test prep, extra-curricular activities, athletics — and maybe even a job! Never mind time for family and a social life…it’s no wonder your teen has little or no time to devote to planning college tours and visits. Yet despite online virtual tours, college websites and printed brochures, visiting in person is still the best way to get a sense of a college’s energy, culture and academic environment.
That’s where Custom College Visits can help. No matter what stage of the college search process you’re in, we’ll help you manage your time and create itineraries so you can tour the college campuses that are of interest to you.

- Does your teen already have a prospective college list but needs to narrow it down?
