For over six years, Ensphere College Planning Services has worked with families of local high school students bound for college. Our mission is to advise parents of college-bound high school students on all phases of college planning. Ensphere College Planning Services offers a unique service in which we show parents how to make college more affordable by managing the college admissions & financial aid process and assisting students in identifying careers, majors, and colleges.
College Financial Planning focuses on high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. We’ll discuss what you need to know to help your children with college preparation and school selection. We’ll guide you through the financial aid process and the information you need to understand in order to maximize the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive. Even if your family is not eligible for need-based aid, we will cover the best strategies on how to pay for college in the most tax-efficient way—without putting a strain on the rest of your finances.
