About Us

OUR MISSION

At Road2College, we are dedicated to providing trustworthy information, education and an independent voice to help parents and students navigate the world of college admissions and financing.  

This site was started by parents for parents to support families in understanding the ins and outs of helping their children be academically, socially, emotionally, and most important financially prepared to apply for college. 

We strongly believe parents need to become educated consumers of higher education to make more informed decisions. Through education and better use of data, our goal is to reduce student debt before it even starts!

In addition to this website, we offer online education and a custom service to find colleges that can offer students the most money.

Debbie Schwartz (Founder)

DKS-Profile-Photo-150x150I’ve been a parent through the college admissions process twice, and have one more times to look forward to (ha!). 

As a marketing executive in financial services, I spent many years working to educate consumers on how to manage different stages of their financial life. I learned to communicate complex financial products in more consumer friendly language. I also observed that most consumers search for help when it’s too late. 

A few years ago, after working with a national bank to better market student loans, I realized what an overwhelming, complicated process college planning and financing had become. Working with other parents, Road2College was born, but with a mission of not just being like other college admissions or student loan sites. We offer content, tools, and services to help families from the beginning of the college search process all the way through to refinancing student loans.

In addition to founding Road2College, I am a mother of 3, an avid tennis player, a lover (and cook) of healthy foods, and a long time volunteer in my kids schools, my synagogue, and breast cancer related organizations. For more information, check out my LinkedIn profile.
