Let’s be honest, college is COSTLY.

Knowing how you and your student will pay for the next four years can be a daunting and overwhelming process.

Let’s get REAL. Most highschool guidance counselors are completely unprepared in how to guide students and their families through understanding how to use the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and CSS (College Scholarship Service) profiles to their financial advantage. CAPofPA is here to fix what is broken.
