“The Athletic Coast Conference tour was such a positive and informative experience that opened our eyes to the overwhelming college search process. It got us started early so that we never felt rushed when we had to make decisions about future college visits and applying. It gave us the opportunity to see a variety of schools with the main focus on the college search process. Everything else was taken care of from meals/snacks, lodging, security, entertainment, tours, information sessions, and itineraries. It was a beneficial experience for both parents and students. The tours helped us with questions to ask at any institution beyond what could be researched so that a realistic picture of the whole college experience could be obtained.”

“Explore Colleges provides a truly valuable service for school counselors and their students. The college tour packages are organized, informative and economical, saving counselors significant amounts of time and money and providing students with potentially life-changing experiences that they might not otherwise get.”

“Thank you for the wonderful experience that you put together for our kids and our staff. It was an impactful trip that opened their eyes to different colleges and opportunities that they had not considered when thinking about college.  You are all amazing and our staff loved your enthusiasm and professionalism…”

“Explore Colleges’ program was an answer to my prayers.  They organized EVERYTHING — all I had to do was show up with my kids.  They made all the contacts, set up all the visits and followed through with every little detail.”

“Explore Colleges worked with us to help fulfill the college visits, the matching fund requirements and the service-learning parts of our grant.  They were a true partner and the tour was a win-win for both the administration and the students.”

“My daughter and I learned so much on our tour – and had fun too. It was the ideal way to visit colleges and I’d recommend it highly for every family.”

Alice Hubbard

Explore Colleges definitely exceeded expectations on our college tour to Chicago this summer. Kathie was extremely organized and our transitions and activities were executed smoothly. The students enjoyed every second of the trip and it was a nice change of pace to allow someone else to handle all of the logistics. I will definitely be working with Explore Colleges in the future! Thanks again!
