The college admissions process is competitive, complex and can be overwhelming.  We work with students and families to carefully consider the academic and social environment that will be the best fit for each individual. No two students are alike, so we strive to understand each student’s talents, interests and dreams in order to make the best college choice possible.

At Best Fit Edu, we believe it is important that families from all backgrounds have the opportunity to have quality guidance throughout the college process.  We especially welcome International students living in the US or abroad looking to study in the US and families who are new or who are unfamiliar with the US college process.

We offer a variety of plans and services in order to meet your individual needs in the college planning process.

When working with a family to plan for college, we follow the TRACK IT! college planning curriculum which guides students and families through the entire process. The curriculum is personalized for each family depending on their needs and when the students start working with the college advisor.
