The Business is a profitable and highly-automated college admissions and financial aid advisory company. The Company offers customized services to students such as personal consultants, student profile creation, SAT/ACT classes, college search and visit training and more. All services are tailored to find the college and major best suited for the applicant and design affordable payment plans. The majority owner (75%) is not involved in any aspect of the day-to-day operations. The minority owner (25%) works approximately 5 hours per week. Ownership is interested in selling to focus on other business opportunities.
Parents can also work with the consultant to answer questions concerning college events, filing deadlines, and most importantly coordinating available financial aid for their child. The company sponsors college funding workshops outlining strategies and techniques to make the college experience more affordable. Many of the services offered are web-based and highly automated for ease of use to the client.
A proprietary software package has been developed by ownership that allows for a smooth transition to the purchaser, coordinates with resellers, and accessible to clients remotely. The company-sponsored college funding workshops provide the attendees insight into the services offered by the Company creating a sustained client base. The Company offers the most complete admissions assistance and financial aid tools for students and their parents. Three employees maintain the current customers allowing the new owner to market the business by expanding corporate membership, broadening affiliate resellers, or utilization of social networking platforms.

There are very few providers that offer the broad range of services to students and parents for college preparation, admissions and financial aid guidance than the Company. Some providers offer similar solutions but are either marketed for the prestigious colleges at a very high cost to the client, or the platforms do not offer an integrated solution. Other investment highlights Include:
(1) Niche Service Offering with Established Infrastructure;
(2) Proprietary Software and Website; and
(3) Leading Industry Reputation.
