The LCC Difference

Layman College Consulting was founded on the belief that planning for college should be an exciting and enjoyable part of the high school experience—not an overwhelming one. We’re committed to preparing high school students with the tools they need to transition successfully into their next step, while taking the stress out of the equation. That means providing students with not only top-notch educational resources, but also personalized guidance to help them enjoy their experience along the way.


Trusted Expertise.

When you work with us, you can feel confident that you’re in the hands of experts. Led by Independent Educational Consultants Association (IECA) Associate Member Elease Layman, all of our services are grounded in industry best practices and follow the professional standards set forth by IECA. 

Cutting-Edge Curriculum

We use our own proprietary test prep and college consulting curriculum, incorporating official SAT and ACT materials along the way. In fact, several schools across the country have brought us on as a test prep partner, including

  • Westminster Schools of Augusta (Augusta, GA)

  • Vail Christian High School (Edwards, CO)

  • Richmond County School System (Augusta, GA)

  • Summit Christian Academy (Yorktown, VA)

[My son’s] scores were greatly improved this last ACT. Especially the areas you focused on in his private tutoring. We are so very grateful that you helped him perform at his very best. ... He is thrilled with his scores and credits his time with you as having really helped with science, English, and the essay.
— Donna B.

Tailored Approach

The U.S. Department of Education reports that in today’s public schools, each guidance counselor is responsible for an average of 476 students. You won’t find that here. We keep our caseloads to 20 students per tutor or lower—ensuring that all students receive a personalized approach that fits their needs. We also structure our services to fit students’ busy lives, offering both online and in-person formats to work around students’ schedules.

[My daughter] has heard from all schools and was accepted to all. Your help certainly got her there!
