Meet Tonica

With almost a decade of experience in the field of education, she has worked with hundreds of students and their families. Formally a high school English teacher, Tonica noticed the need for more support throughout the crazy college search and application process, and founded Cardinal College Planning! She wants every student to end up at the school that is the best fit for them- academically, financially, and socially. Each student is unique, so Tonica will work to create a customized plan of action. Get in touch to learn more about her college advising process and build a custom college plan!

"Tonica has been an amazing help throughout this college process. Without her, I don't know if I would be where I am today." -Aaron Martin, class of 2020 


The Value of Cardinal College Planning

  • The Average Total Cost of Public Colleges is $25,290 (in-state), $40,940 (out-of-state), and Private Colleges are at $50,900 for EACH year! Additionally, just 41% of college students graduate in 4 years, driving up the cost significantly. If you consider the potential for long term savings that may be found with the expertise of asking colleges the right questions, knowing how to craft an appealing application, and analyzing financial aid packages, your return of investment makes this an incredibly smart financial decision.

  • Stress Less! High school is already a busy time between courses, extra-curricular activities, and more. Then, on top of traditional schooling responsibilities, now there is a shift to a focus on the future as well, which can be incredibly overwhelming. We take the stress off of both the student and the parents by keeping everyone on track of what they should be doing and when, restoring a sense of peace for the whole family!
