“The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process…”

As a family with 2 children, the cost of high school has been a significant burden upon the financial picture and being able to ‘make-ends-meet’. When our older daughter was ready for college, we were advised to consider the services of The College Planning Network, and I am so glad that we took the time to investigate what CPN has to offer.

We started using CPN three years ago and continue to utilize their services as our older daughter now will enter her junior year in college and our younger daughter enters her senior year of high school. From the beginning of the college search, through the college selection, the procedures required to apply for admission, all the required college forms, and the methods of applying for scholarships, grants, and loans, CPN has been a major advisor upon all of our decisions.

The approach CPN utilizes is a personal and a very thorough review, taking into consideration all of the aspects of the search process, including the desires of the pre-college student, the long term cost of the education, the impact of the financial cost upon the family, and most importantly – an emphasis upon how these goals can be accomplished while maintaining the financial viability of the family.

The funding of college education is an overwhelming task. CPN assists by providing a complete review of the process. With the services of CPN, we will meet the goals of having both of our children attend quality schools and the financial burden will be minimized and viable for all concerned.

“By lowering our EFC we have saved our family thousands of dollars in college funding.”

When we listened to The College Planning Network’s Tele-Workshop, we knew it was different than other seminars we had attended before that simply told us how to fill out the dreaded FAFSA and when to do it. The presenter was knowledgeable and gave many “free” tips and techniques in the Tele-Workshop. After an hour of an informative session, we chose to hire The College Planning Network to help us through the College Funding process. CPN gave us tips and techniques of lowering our EFC that we would normally not have known about. By lowering our EFC we have saved our family thousands of dollars in college funding.

“We could not have gotten where we are without you.”

Dear Cathy and Joanna,

Laura got accepted to Ohio Northern (which was one of her top choices). No news from the other colleges yet but I know it is still early. We could not have gotten where we are without you. Thank you so much.

“…It looks like we will not have to pay anything or take out any loans this year!”

Hi Scott!

I just wanted to let you know that we just got the first award letter back for the 2007 and 2008 school year for Breanne and Allison. They have received so much in aid that it looks like we will not have to pay anything or take out any loans this year! I think we have structured my finances so that we can benefit greatly! I am dumbfounded and very pleased!

Thanks for all your help to get us positioned for this good news! Rebekah and I went to look at a couple schools during spring break last week so the process begins again! I may want you to run some EFC numbers on different schools sometime next year when we have a better defined list for her.

Take Care,
Laurel B.
