In 2010, college debt passed credit card debt as the largest debt category in our country. This is a problem!

A report by the National Student Clearinghouse Research Center found that 37.2 percent of college students change schools at least once within six years. This is a big problem!

Nationally, only 33.3% of students attending public colleges and universities graduate in four years. This is a bigger problem!

Is your family ready to help your student?

“I want to tell you how much we appreciate your college bound seminars and how it has really benefited all of us. Had it not been for your parent class and the timeline of events you provided the girls would likely have followed the recommendation of their high school, which in my opinion felt late: hence the reason we sought out your program. Your timeline ended up being a lifesaver! I wanted you to know what an impact you make on the lives of these kids. You are an incredible instructor, and you provide them with tools to gain the opportunities they otherwise may not have. Not to mention the long term financial impact you have on families. I pray God continues to bless others through the work he has called you to do so well.”

Respectfully, Mel

"I just wanted to let you know that Morgan's senior class met with the guidance counselor yesterday (September 1st) to go over items that need to be done for seniors, and as we were checking items off the list, Morgan was way ahead of all the suggestions! This is due completely to us attending the college bound seminar AND following your checklist to the letter. Thanks for making her senior year less stressful and for your excellent suggestions and timeline."

– Morgan's Mom


"Just want to thank you and your team for all the great information you helped us with in order to prepare our son for college. He leaves in 3 weeks and we are very blessed with getting over $50,000 worth of scholarship money. You helped him raise his ACT score by 3 points. He got a 31. You also helped us create a resume and motivated us to meet with some key people at the college of his choice. On our fifth visit to the college we shared a senior paper our son had written, this conversation resulted in an additional $20,000. The college bound seminar for parents was exactly what we needed and helped us build a strategy to get the most merit scholarship money we could."

– Colin's Dad


"Jason, we just wanted to let you know Mallory went ahead and applied to Northwestern. She found out last week she was accepted!! Excited does not begin to describe her mood. Her financial aid package followed on Thursday. Her estimated costs were around $68,000 per year. However, her grants and scholarships came in at almost $64,000 per year. If we hadn't taken your college bound seminar, we would never have started searching and visiting soon enough or known what questions to ask to make this happen for her. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

– Mallory's Dad

Many parents have encouraged Jason to make a “class” for parents that cover the topics in his seminars. Jason created a self-paced online video class for parents AND students that covers the path to college from start to finish. The videos have been professionally produced in a studio, so it feels like Jason is talking directly to you. Families will have access to the online class for one year, allowing parents and students to review the content as much as desired.
