Why
College Coach?

The secret? Our team.
Each of our consultants is an experienced former admissions or financial aid officer from a top college or university.

And each was a decision maker—evaluating thousands of college applications every year—so they know what admissions officers are looking for and what will stand out. Bright Horizons College Coach® has successfully helped thousands of students pursue their college dreams.

College Coach Team
We’re focused on one student – yours

One size does not fit all. And your child’s admissions plan will be designed to fit their personal desires, individual strengths, and unique achievements.

We include you in the process

Families are fully engaged in matching students one-on-one with advisors. The match isn’t final until it feels right for everyone.

How Bright Horizons
College Coach Works

Each College Coach experience is personalized. We start by getting to know the student (their individual strengths, achievements, and what makes them tick), then work together to create a manageable, time-saving schedule that keeps students on track.

Work with us in person (where available), by phone, email, or video conference – whatever fits best. All experiences also include a primary customer service contact for questions or concerns.

Wondering when to start?
Since choices made early in high school affect college decisions, families often start with us well before senior year.
