We know you have heard that the college admissions process is stressful (and it is). It’s hard to know where to start and how to find reliable information.

We have a unique approach at College MatchPoint. It all begins and ends with our ultimate goal: for our students to thrive in their selected college. Yes, this means we want them to love it—academically and socially. We also make sure that it fits within your family’s budget.

“With their experience and expertise, College MatchPoint took a process that was completely overwhelming and made it much easier to understand and complete. The team helped to refine applications and essays to make sure all were aligned and the best that they could be. I am sure this was instrumental in helping my daughter receive an acceptance to every school she applied to. She will be attending University of Texas, McCombs School of Business. We could not have done it without them!”

College MatchPoint provides a framework that reduces the stress in this process. Our model has been successful with national merit scholars, as well as students with learning differences. 

What’s Different About Our Process

Team of Experts

Not to brag, but we have an amazing team of experienced educational consultants, college admissions specialists, and college essay writing coaches. Our founder has worked with students for over 25 years. Our college essay specialists are gifted and accomplished writers, many of whom have taught at the college level. You will notice that the majority of our college counseling team holds Master’s degrees in their respective fields. And each of us shares a common goal: for your student to thrive in his or her college. We meet, strategize, and ponder how to make your student shine. Meet the team.

When it was time for our son to begin focusing on his plans for college, my husband and I knew that he needed to be personally responsible for meeting various deadlines and requirements to gain acceptance into any college that he was interested in applying to for admission. Naturally, we recognized that he would need some guidance along the way, but neither of us were confident in our ability to provide the most up-to-date or accurate advice and direction since the process is very different than when we attended college. With that in mind, we decided to partner with College MatchPoint during the fall of our son’s junior year. This has absolutely been one of the best decisions we could have made.

Working Meetings

We get work done. Our student sessions are working meetings. We purposely set up our college planning office in Austin, Texas, with a large student work room. There is plenty of space to get right down to work on the college admissions process, and our team is with the students every step of the way. Even those students who aren’t local get our full attention via Skype meetings or conference calls. (Our great snacks are a motivator too!) When students walk out the College MatchPoint office door or hang up the phone, they feel a sense of accomplishment, confident that they are one step closer to completing their college admissions process.

The people and services are fabulous! We were treated respectfully and professionally. We needed a unique fit for our daughter and College MatchPoint was able to find a fabulous school that offers the services and programs needed. I would highly recommend this program!
