Providing College and Career guidance for students and families. 425-941-7398

Choosing a college begins long before your child graduates from high school. While you can start this process any time, beginning as your child enters ninth grade gives them a distinct advantage.

Educating incoming high school students about their curriculum options, extracurricular activities, volunteer opportunities and summer enrichment programs will help them take advantage of all the choices available to them.

So much of the college application stress comes from not understanding how the process works. That’s where we come in! When working with Educated Choices you’ll have an experienced guide by your side at every step along the way.

Kara was AWESOME! I sent my daughter to her because she was in need of direction after graduating and looking at master’s programs. Kara was able to meet with her, understand her needs and help her move in the right direction. She has now decided on where to go and she's doing great! Kara's experience and background is so extensive that I felt like we were in great hands. Highly recommend her services! - Bruce Pflaumer, parent of Seattle Pacific University student
