A message from CBC Managing Partners

From a sole practitioner to a multi-consultant practice, CBC is proud to have shepherded hundreds of high school students and their families through the college admissions process. As the landscape twists and turns, we have committed ourselves to not only following the trends but being ahead of them.  Our highly credentialed and experienced team makes it their business to dig deeply into the nuanced information for the benefit of CBC clients. We measure our success in the numbers:  ​- Over 90% of our clients are admitted into their top choice schools. - Over 95% are recipients of merit-based scholarships.  We value the relationship we develop with our clients to identify and apply to their best-fit schools, celebrating each success alongside them. That’s why, despite our growth since our founding, so much of our business comes through referrals from former clients. We welcome you to become part of our CBC family.

 I truly do not think my kids would have had the admission successes they did without the help of CBC. I have recommended CBC to multiple friends and would recommend them to any parent helping their child navigate the college selection and application process.

Thanks to great advice and guidance from College Bound Consulting (CBC) my daughter was admitted to her first choice school. Her consultant was terrific! We will definitely use CBC again for our youngest.

Our son is thrilled that he gained acceptance to his first choice university. We can’t thank you enough for your help over the past two years. The unexpected bonus is that working with you helped him become a more confident and thoughtful writer.
