​Why Hire an Independent Educational Consultant?

Selecting the right college fit can be a difficult, confusing and an overwhelming experience without the support of a knowledgeable, qualified and experienced college counselor.  The process for finding the right school, university or program is anxiety inducing and increasingly complex.  Hiring a member of HECA or IECA if you would like to work with a professional who adheres to the highest standards in education, training, ethics and experience. 


Discovering the right college begins with thinking about the future. It's the kind of journey  that can take you to some really amazing places. You'll learn something about who you are and what you want to be. You may even learn that there's more than one right college for you.

The journey doesn't need to wait until junior year of high school.   It can begin with a middle school decision about which foreign language to study or which math track to follow . Or it can start with informal visits to local colleges and discussions about programs or majors.
