The key to your child’s future is in your hands

Selecting a college and choosing that first job after graduation are two of the most important choices your child will make in their lifetime. These decisions create a foundation for everything that follows.

Kara Neary | Educated Choices

You have the power to unlock a beautiful, happy, successful future for your children by guiding them to make educated choices at critical turning points like this one. However, you don’t have to do it all alone.

I’m Kara Neary, founder of Educated Choices. I work with parents like you who want to give their children every opportunity to succeed.

I take the stress out of college and career planning for your family while helping your student create a more fulfilling experience.
