LEARN ABOUT US
Who is CPCS?
We are college-funding specialists.
We are the resource for parents who want to be
coached on how to maximize financial aid and
minimize their out of pocket costs.
What does CPCS do?
We coach parents on how to strategically position their student so that the school of their choice wants them. We help schools get into a “bidding war” against each other, thus offering the most money for that student. We coach parents on how to legally and ethically make changes to their finances to maximize their potential “need,” and minimize taxes and lost interest.
When should I begin my college search & college planning?
To minimize your stress and maximize your planning effectiveness, starting certain items in the student's 9th grade is recommended. Other aspects, such as the college search, should begin no later than the student’s junior year of high school. College planning should have started when you got the “test results 17 years ago.” The closer your student is to going to college the more challenging it is - but even if your student is a senior in high school - it is still not too late.
Why should I pay for someone to do this process for me?
The same reason you pay a surgeon to perform surgery. You don’t know how to do this as comprehensively as our team can. If you try to do it on your own you may not get the maximum benefit possible. If you work with us we will do everything in our power to provide you with tremendous value and peace of mind.
Why college financial aid officers can’t help you
College advisors will not assist you in picking out the right college or help you fill out the seemingly endless forms.
How to qualify even if you think you make too much money
College planning is NOT just about need-based aid. Many other planning strategies are available to drastically reduce your out of pocket costs. There are many legal ways to slay the college-funding beast. For example, cash flow strategies, merit-based aid strategies, student positioning strategies, appeal strategies, and more.
Why your accountant is not a good resource
Typical CPA's and accountants are not experts in the nuances of college planning and funding. We will help guide you through the financial incentives, tips, tricks, and shortcuts the colleges don’t want you to discover.
