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.
CONNECT WITH OTHER PARENTS FIGURING OUT HOW TO PAY FOR COLLEGE
Debbie Schwartz (Founder)
I’ve been a parent through the college admissions process once, and have two more times to look forward to (ha!). I’ve also supported friends and relatives through the complex maze of understanding college admissions and financing and how best to support and guide their own students.
As a marketing executive in financial services, I spent many years working to educate consumers on different stages of their financial life and communicate complex financial products in more consumer friendly language. I learned 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 planning newsletters – we don’t wait till parents find us, we work on finding parents before they realize they need us.
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.
