Motivators, Planners, Problem-Solvers

Preparing for college starts long before
high school graduation. Making the right choices early makes all the difference for your child's journey.

What Sets Us Apart

Personal attention-along with expert advice - is the hallmark of our program, where Bridget and her support staff brings to students and parents the in-depth knowledge that can only come from over 80 years of combined experience working at both the high school and college levels. We limit our practice to 30 students per grade to be able to afford our families the best customer experience – which means accessibility. We are available to answer questions, solve problems and to motivate our students seven days a week. It’s not a job, it’s a calling.

It is a fact that the more guidance high school students receive about college, the more likely they are to attend college and be successful students. Since college is the launching pad for your child’s career and his or her adult life, shouldn’t you try to obtain the best, most comprehensive guidance possible?

 We invite you to set up a complimentary college planning meeting – and join with us to create a College Bound Academy success story for your family.

College Admission Programs

When should I visit a college? Do I need a resume? How do I gain a competitive edge? How do I decide on my top choice? What should I major in? For all high school students, college planning can be a confusing process.

Testing Prep

How you prep for your college entrance exams is as important the score you receive – it can impact your bottom line. A high score may mean ‘preferential packaging’ at some schools.

What Our Families Are Saying

We were so impressed with everyone’s warmth and kindness as they took us through the college search process. We feel that Bridget and her staff see their role at College Bound as not just a job, but as a personal commitment to their students and families. They listened to all of our needs and helped (our daughter) Bridget find a college that is a good match for her personality and wishes and hopes.

Gale and Patrick

College Bound has been a real asset to our family for the past four years. The professional staff has guided us through the entire college experience from the selection of schools through the application process and completion of financial aid forms. Both of my kids have benefited from the practical seminars offered at College Bound.
