It’s never too early to start planning for college but, the mammoth task of balancing budgets and searching state or nationwide for a suitable school can be daunting. Thanks to Education Path Finder, students and their parents can now share the workload with an intuitive new educational resource that acts as an academic matchmaker between colleges, and career minded students.
Education Path Finder is a school matching site that covers the entire educational ecosystem of students and parents, schools and colleges, tutors and planners, making it the best place to start planning.
The innovative college search connects students from the U.S. and around the world with U.S. and Canadian colleges, universities, technical and vocational schools giving them the opportunity to find the school of their dream.
Elena Rondi Sophiea, Academic Director shared: “With today’s competitive environment, learning about schools and what it takes to get into the school of your dreams, requires a substantial amount of planning. Some schools start preparing students as early as 8th or 9th grade, but there is still an overwhelming number of decisions to make.
“Our service is designed to reduce the stress of finding the right school. We want to see even more students get into their dream school and that means providing students with an accessible and reliable way to choose a school and work towards their individual goals.”
Education Path Finder’s marketplace is packed with features and functionality. Its resources include financial guides, helpful blogs and top tips as well as a thriving community of more than 30 million students globally to offer advice and support.
According to the 2013-14 statistics from the College Board using the Carnegie Classification, the average cost of undergraduate education can reach as much as $38,328, a figure which underlines the importance of finding the right match.
With more than 7000 U.S. and Canadian education institutions indexed (and more to come), students can search for schools they may not previously have considered, sort by location, by budget or use the site’s mobile app to browse quickly and easily from a smartphone or tablet device.
This new site allows students to map their own unique path whether they want to pursue a vocational or technical degree, find the right community college, graduate, undergraduate program, or even maybe that PhD. They can also get assistance from tutors and planners who will guide them through homework help, test prep, scholarship guidance or work with them during the planning process.
Leigh Johnson, Business Manager adds: “We are constantly developing the site and its resources in order to ensure students find their best match school. Going to college or learning a trade is a hugely exciting time but we know that it can also be utterly overwhelming.
