EWS services are aligned to help families pay for college without derailing retirement or amassing unmanageable debt.  Parents who plan early, long before high school, have more options and set themselves up to pay less for college.  Late stage college planning includes families with students who are already in High School.  Whether your family is in the early stage of college planning (newborn through middle school age) or have teenagers in high school, we can help you to pay the right price for college, not the sticker price.  We help your student look beyond college and major selection to a career selection in which they are Fit 2 Flourish.  Using college funding tools, calculators and strategies, we will help you understand the best practice for reducing your college expenses. 


If you’re concerned about paying for your children’s college, then there is no better professional to discuss your financial concerns than a Certified College Funding Specialist.

CCFS® designees are some of the nation's Certified Financial Planners, CPAs, Wealth & Retirement Planners, and other licensed financial professionals. CCFS® designees are the only advisors qualified to give advice on the financial aspects of paying for college, and that’s why you can save 15-30% of your overall cost of college working with one.

High school counselors, college counselors, and the vast resources available online help with the general issues of preparing for college, such as admissions, ACT/SAT prep, and college selection. A CCFS® (Certified College Funding Specialist), though, is the only resource qualified to share prudent tax, financial, cash flow, and lending advice that helps families lower the costs of college and pay the tuition bill.

Each CCFS® is required to adhere to the highest standards of professional competence, ethical standards, and continuous professional education in the college financial planning field. They are qualified and committed to making financial recommendations in your best interest.
