An investment in your child’s future

Four years of college is a huge investment on your part, and choosing a college is probably the single biggest life decision your child will make thus far. Higher Ed Tours is here to help your student consider a wide range of possibilities while providing experiences which help filter through the options. Students walk away with a better idea of what their “good fit” schools look like. And we provide the options and guidance to help your student find their “Best Fit” school! Thus, an investment in a quality tour experience can help to ensure that the following years of education pay dividends into their future.

Expertise in finding a “Best Fit”

An important feature of our tours is the expertise and support of the tour leaders with their broad knowledge base in college counseling. The tour participants are provided with help and information throughout the day and especially in focused feedback sessions at each day’s conclusion.

We do the work so that your child can reap the benefits

We take on the complicated and time-consuming tasks of planning and coordinating the college visits, sleeping arrangements, ground travel and meals so that your child can focus on making discoveries.
