Planning for college isn't as simple as it once was. Test scores, AP/IB classes, increasing college costs, and everything in between have made the process increasingly complicated--and stressful.

That's where we come in.


We're here for you.

At Layman College Consulting, we recognize there isn't just one path to college. As a full-service organization specializing in postsecondary planning, we're here to help your student navigate that path, wherever it may lead.

We work with high school students around the country and across all phases of the college planning process, providing expert guidance at each stage. From comprehensive test preparation to personalized consulting services, we're here to set your student up for college success--and give you peace of mind along the way.

I am so glad that we found you! Worth every penny, and more importantly, worth every minute that Martha spent with you on SAT/ACT prep and college applications. MANY, MANY THANKS.
— Tricia N.
I want to thank you once again for all the help you gave [my daughter] during this process. I can’t put into words how much your input and advice helped [her], as well as the preparation for tests and application reviews. We could not have done it without you! Your help really has been invaluable!
— Julie V.
