Our passion for all things “college” is obvious the moment you meet us. We develop personal relationships with our clients and are personally invested in our students’ success. Because our background is entirely in the field of education, we have a fundamental understanding of the needs of students, the needs of parents and the entire college admissions process, which is something not all independent educational consultants can say. We truly enjoy sharing our extensive knowledge with our families and work in partnership with them to support and encourage students through their high school years.
We’re here to help.
The college admissions process is vastly different from what it was just 10 years ago, and most parents don’t even know where to begin.
At Great College Fit, we provide the personal attention and insightful expertise your student needs to navigate the complexities of the college search and application process. Through highly individualized, one-on-one work sessions, we help students:
- Develop a reasonable list of best-fit colleges and a strategic submission approach
- Create a realistic, step-by-step college application timeline for which they are held accountable
- Complete error-free essays, winning personal statements, and individualized applications
- Successfully apply to college on time and with less stress-for themselves AND their parents!
We are an IECA member consultant and we can be a welcome resource for students and families who are looking for knowledgeable professionals with experience in admissions counseling. IECA members provide individual attention, flexible scheduling, and are committed to finding colleges that are the right fit for the student.
There is no one “right” college, but there is a right way to approach college admissions.
Navigating the college admissions process requires a personalized strategy to determine:
the RIGHT Academic Fit | the RIGHT Social Fit | the RIGHT Financial Fit
Don’t go it alone! Let Great College Fit help.
About Great College Fit
We offer our services completely online. Students work with their Great College Fit Counselor via internet-based platforms like FaceTime, Zoom and Google Hangouts. We are uniquely situated to utilize the internet to work with students near and far. Working remotely saves students time and makes sense during these uncertain times. Current high school students have used technology their entire lives and are extremely comfortable in front of a screen. If you are a parent who is uncomfortable with a virtual platform, ask your student what he/she thinks. We guarantee they’ll be excited to receive our services from the comfort of your home.
Comprehensive College Counseling
Our signature, flat-fee program begins in the spring of 11th grade and guides students through all aspects of college admissions–all the way until high school graduation.

We used the services of Great College Fit for both of our children and we could not be happier. The attention given to each person’s interests, abilities, strengths and personality to select the right fit college choices was priceless. The complete college application process was stress-free and we HIGHLY recommend Great College Fit if you are looking for a positive and worry-free experience.GCF parent
My daughter’s Great College Fit counselor opened her eyes to colleges that she would never have applied to for admission. Great College Fit helped her focus on what was important to her and allowed her to narrow her choices to the schools that were the best fit for her. She is finishing her first year of college and loves where she is. Thank you, Great College Fit!GCF parent
