College Find will not only find the schools that are seeking your student's talent, but also inform and support your student through the recruiting process.

"Gael created a structure for our daughter to work within. She was able to have an objective person respond to her questions and help her refine her choice. The timeline structure created a more relaxed environment at home because I didn't need to become involved in enforcing deadlines."
~ Elyse Pasha (daughter, Cherylann, at College of the Holy Cross)
"None of this would have been possible without you. You made sure we were on target; we didn't scramble at the last minute and we never went to the Panic Room. I actually had a good time doing this with Greyson. I can tell you, since I'm spending a lot of time at track meets with other senior parents, they did not have a good experience and you can see the worry in their face. I consider myself blessed."
~ Lori Tarantino (son, Greyson, at UC Davis)
"Gael, I truly appreciated your timely help and guidance. Michael's process was fairly organized because of your organization. Honestly, our only problem was making a choice of college after he was accepted to so many."
~ Kerry Keefe (son, Michael, at Seattle U.)
