The Value of Cardinal College Planning

Personalized Attention:

This is a very time consuming and intricate process, and, the truth is, most school counselors simply don't have enough time to give individual guidance for the large amount of students they have. The United States has an average student-to-counselor ratio of 464:1, significantly higher than the American School Counselor Association's recommendation of 250-to-1. I will prioritize your student's personal needs through each step of the way!

Life has brought about many changes lately, but one thing remains true: finding the perfect college is still so important! 

Meet Tonica

With almost a decade of experience in the field of education, I have worked with hundreds of students and their families. Formally a high school English teacher, I noticed the need for more support throughout the crazy college search and application process! I want every student to end up at the school that is the best fit for them- academically, financially, and socially. Each student is unique, so I will work to create a customized plan of action. Get in touch to learn more about my vision and approach!
