When I met Sean Smith at a college fair with my children, I had no idea how much of an impact he would have on my family’s lives. Sean worked with all four of my children to find the perfect college fit. He built a relationship with each of my children through periodic meetings, ACT prep classes, and college application workshops. Without his unwavering support, the college search would have been a nightmare. He ensured all of my children were working hard in school, taking the right classes, and staying involved in extra-curricular activities to help build a strong resume for their college applications. I have college graduates from Auburn University and High Point University, and have two other children currently attending Stanford University and The University of Colorado-Boulder. I attribute a big part of my children’s success to the support they garnered from Sean Smith and The College Project! I cannot thank Sean enough for all he has done to help jumpstart my children’s futures.

We have used Sean’s services for both of our sons with incredible results! Sean kept them on task while assisting them with essays, standardized test prep and the whole application process. Outside of the 529 college savings program, this was one of the best financial investments we’ve made for our children. Between both boys, they received over $800,000 in scholarships! Thank you to Sean and his program!

We had a great experience with Sean Smith and The College Project. Our daughter received excellent one-on-one instruction and coaching about every step of the college application process, plus helpful ACT practice sessions. Sean really takes a personal interest in the students he works with and is also great about communicating with parents to keep them involved. His contacts and encouragement really helps students maintain motivation and focus. Our daughter ended up receiving multiple college admission offers and several large scholarships at some very competitive schools. We were totally satisfied and would wholeheartedly recommend Sean Smith and The College Project to anyone who is looking for a great college planner!

I think there are lots of reasons to use Sean. The college search can be very complicated with lots of work needed to be thorough. Colleges are unforgiving when it comes to incomplete applications and missed deadlines. Some high schools try to help with the process, but usually lack the resources to give every student what they need, especially top students. Sean has a deliberate program that gets you there ahead of schedule.
We sometimes would have a conversation with Sean directly to discuss what needed to be done; then let Sean communicate with our son. It was certainly easier for Sean to ask our, already busy, son to do the extra work.
The college search is likely the last big decision, we as parents, get to share in with our children. Sean certainly helped us with the journey.
