What Others Say

We love our clients and how we help get students on the right path to success.

All parents want help in saving their time, money, and sanity. I know I do.

Did you know???

You could spend up to $10,000 just researching, preparing, and applying to colleges.

  • SAT and ACT fees and prep courses
  • Gas, airline, hotel, and food expenses for visiting the college campuses
  • College application and admissions fees

ADD the $120,000 you will spend over the next four years for tuition, room, food, and all the other extra fees.

After spending all this money, do you want to hear this from your teen...?

“I want to change my major, which means I will be in college for an additional year.”

“I don’t want to get a career in the field I majored in.”

“I don’t like college and I want to drop out.”

Are you willing to make decisions about college without a clear plan of how your teen's education will help them after graduation?

How My Ideal College Helps

My Ideal College uses Harrison Assessments work preferences questionnaire to identify careers your teen will enjoy.

Research shows if your job contains at least 75% of what you naturally like to do to, you will be THREE TIMES more successful.

Harrison technology allows us to match your teen’s interests in jobs, not categories. Jobs in our system include – Film/Television Director, Salesperson, Commercial Diver, Electronic Drafter, Geophysicist, Welder, and hundreds more. There are over 650 jobs in the Harrison system. You can click here to see a sample Career Options report.

After reviewing their questionnaire results, we have the teen research the job outlook and salary for the careers they are interested in. Teens need to know if there are going to be jobs at the salary level they want before they pursue it. We call it finding your passion with reason.

Finally, we have the teen research educational options for that career – college, trade school, or certification.

We offer our process in three different ways. You can choose the option based on the way your teen learns best. Click here to learn more.

“We found My Ideal College services invaluable when it was time to have our son focus on his plans for the future. We wanted to make the best use of the dual enrollment program. Career aptitude tests seemed so generalized and lacked the information we needed to make an informed decision. The testing and follow up meetings with Laurie helped put our son on the correct path for choosing a college!”
