At Cornerstone College Solutions, we are committed to educating parents with children of all ages to navigate the often complicated, confusing and frustrating process of planning for the expense of undergraduate and graduate degrees for their children. The cost of college is astronomical and rates continue to rise for both public and private universities. Many parents toss and turn at night wondering how they will be able to afford to send their children to school. Parents often worry about having to take on enormous debt in order to make college a reality and other families wonder if paying for college will force them to sacrifice a comfortable retirement. Sometimes, the fear of paying for college causes parents to become “paralyzed”, unable to figure out what steps to take to effectively prepare.
Regardless of whether college is around the corner or whether families have many years to plan, there is no better time than the present to develop important college planning strategies.
Cornerstone College Solutions guides families through this challenging journey and explores each family’s unique financial situation and goals for their children, and most importantly, provides peace of mind. No one family is alike and thus, there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution. Our college planning specialists help families figure out how to pay less for school, take on less debt and pay for school without jeopardizing retirement.
If you would like to learn more, please register for one of our many upcoming Cornerstone College Solutions’ College Funding Workshops which are sponsored by local libraries, schools, businesses, houses of worship and others, but are open to all. You may also sign up for a complimentary, one-on-one consultation with one of our college funding specialists, where we can address your college concerns and goals. Even families that won’t qualify for financial aid can learn to save money and benefit from proper customized planning.
If you are like most parents, you want to do everything possible to send your children to the college of their dreams but with the cost of college being such a daunting expense, you are likely wondering how you are going to cover the costs without having to give up so many other things in your life, including a comfortable retirement. Regardless of whether you have saved a lot or a little, or for most people, somewhere in between, our process and strategies can help identify ways to save more effectively and reduce the overall cost of college. Whether you have been referred to us from a family member or friend, attended one of our College Funding Workshops, or found us online, we are here to help you!
Aside from the rising cost of college, there are often so many evolving factors that influence and impact our savings, including fluctuations in the stock market, unemployment rates, changes in financial policies in the U.S., and projected tax increases down the road. Our college funding specialists take all of these factors into consideration when designing a strategy for you.
Our goal is to meet your goals! We work collaboratively with our team, and with you, to understand your full financial picture so that college planning is not done in an isolated manner and is incorporated into the broader context of financial and life planning.
