Learn what other parents of college-bound students are saying about CPN
Sitting in on the free Tele-Workshop made me realize that the college search and the financial preparations were much more daunting than I realized. CPN was a tremendous help and they even appeared to have fun helping us! We created timelines for the college search, and The College Planning Network completed and submitted my FAFSA forms early. They really helped to simplify the process and calm our nerves. We were even able to reduce our monthly bills! Initially, the cost of sending three kids to college appeared overwhelming. I am now confident that we can do it!

Hi Colleen and Kristen – just want to thank you for all your great work keeping me organized and focused with kind reminders and even some patient reassurance with all my last minute questions. My son just received word that he has been accepted Early Decision at Colorado College, and we received excellent financial aid – couldn’t have done it without you. We are all ecstatic!
Have a wonderful holiday season.
All the best,
As many parents with children getting closer to going to college, we were setting away money for their education, but as we found out, not nearly enough for the astronomical prices that we have now been exposed to. Faced with the fact that our Family Contribution could be as high as $25k per year for 8 years for our two children, we needed to find effective ways to do this without sending us into debt that we couldn’t get out of. We also do not want to strap our children to what could amount to be a lifetime of debt.
We listened to a brief, one hour Tele-Workshop introduction to The College Planning Network. As the Tele-Workshop ended, I found myself saying “this sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch?” There was no “catch”, just a detailed total plan of lowering our Expected Family Contribution, providing us some tax advantages and staying within the agreed upon budget that we had established. The additional ‘perks’ of filling out financial aid forms, working with our children on narrowing down the selection of colleges and essay writing was just icing on the cake!

I think my wife and I are like most parents who have kids in High School. All you hear is about the high cost of college. As parents, we worried about how we could afford to send our son to college without taking everything we had in savings and if that would even be enough.
We first heard of The College Planning Network through a flyer we got in the mail. After attending their Tele-Workshop, we found out that there are options available for sending your child to college. This was our first time through the college maze. There were financial forms, college applications, what college fits your kids’ needs and the list goes on.
We contacted The College Planning Network where we found everybody that we came in contact with very friendly and very knowledgeable. I even asked for personal recommendations and everybody that I contacted could not say enough about The College Planning Network.
Here I am a year later and our son has been accepted to the college that was first on his list of colleges. The College Planning Network supplied us with a time line for what we needed to have done. Working with my son on college applications was hard enough. I am thankful that I did not have to worry about filling out all the financial forms.
The College Planning Network took the pain out of the confusing financial aid forms, along with helping take the stress out of the college search.
