For over a decade, College MatchPoint has helped students discover colleges where they can thrive both academically and socially. Our personalized approach takes the stress out of the admissions process. We get to know each student as an individual—their hopes, interests, and learning style. This passion drives our dynamic, tight-knit team to constantly evolve how we empower students through the admissions process.
Our process is clear, organized, and even fun. Parents often report that their students grow emotionally, academically, and personally through working with our team. The ultimate goal of College MatchPoint is for our students to thrive in their selected college and first career.
