What Makes Premier College Guidance Different?
Premier College Guidance is a Ventura County based organization that has helped hundreds of families navigate the college admissions and financial aid process. Motivated by the belief that college should be affordable for all Americans, PCG has devoted countless hours and immense energy developing the most powerful information available to help parents and students maximize their award packages.
Our Core Beliefs:
- Make the complicated college financial aid process simple and obtainable
- Get students motivated by finding the best fit schools where they receive the highest level of success
- Give confidence and peace of mind to parents who would do anything for their child and provide them with the support it takes to make college affordable
- Allow students to explore various opportunities by strengthening their skills through ongoing guidance
While the thought of sending your child to a good college may seem to be the best investment you can make, too many families put themselves in a heap of debt trying to do so. The typical alternative is to send the student to the local community college where they can save money while staying at home. This notion is partially why we see overcrowding at the community colleges with little guidance offered to the students.
Parents are afraid that if their child gets accepted to a good university they will need to make the tough decision of either mortgaging their home or taking out other forms of loans. College is changing the way they accept students and how financial aid offers are awarded all the time. No wonder parents are confused with the entire process and ultimately make poor decisions.
Premier College Guidance has put an end to the confusion by hand-holding the family through the process from start to finish. We begin with the student’s needs first then find out how to make their top choice colleges affordable for the parent. This approach has opened the doors to a new way of planning for college. Your child has worked hard to achieve this opportunity and we want to see you make the best decision for them and your pocketbook.
Since college costs continue to go up we feel it is important to figure out what the cost of a degree will end up being for your student before you apply to that particular school. What college can offer you the best education for the most affordable price without compromising quality? The majority of families we see will have an out-of-pocket expense no matter what college they want to apply to. Although it is our belief that a family should pay their fair share for college we do not want to see them pay more than they need to. This is where our team of advisors become a families best friend and show them how to avoid making costly mistakes.
To find out more about what we do we invite you to attend a workshop in your area. If you can’t make it out to hear one of our speakers in person, call our office and schedule a phone meeting with one of our trained advisors. Our goal is to make sure you get all the answers you need to make the college planning process exciting and well worth the investment.
