About us

At 3 Steps to College we serve 9th-12th graders and their parents when they first start thinking about college applications, college, the future and beyond. We know they want to navigate the process with a solid plan, the right skills and without headache.

When teens first start thinking about applying to college, they struggle (or seem uninterested) with knowing what they want for their future and where to start the process, sometimes leading to arguments and conflict with their parents. Of course, this makes parents anxious and upset.

We have spent the past ten years developing a system to help teens get a grasp of who they are, what they want, and how to get it. Our testimonials come from real teens who used our process and went on to attend their best-fit school, score their dream job, or start a business, all because they had passion, the right skills and a plan.

At 3 Steps to College we believe that planning out your teen’s college and future shouldn’t be stressful. It should be exciting!

Wondering what to do? Schedule a free consultation today to discuss enrolling your teen in our upcoming semester so you can stop feeling worried about the big decision and start feeling confident in your teen’s future.

From Parents to Parents

We are professionals and we understand why you worry.

As a parent, the academic and career future of our children can be overwhelming. For teens, it can be equally as stressful. But, why does it have to be? Shouldn’t we all enjoy the journey as much as achieving the goal? At 3 Steps, we believe that by giving our teens the roadmap to a happy future now, you’ll save time, money and a lot of grief!
