How We Help

Services: Custom College


Our Signature Personalized Program

Our unique process is built specifically to address the high stress of the college search on students and families. 


Our coaching team, our personalized approach, and our modern resources have made us a top choice for families looking for a better way to search for a college.

How Does It Work?

  • 21-month program

  • Begins in August of the Junior Year

  • Every student we work with receives a custom college application and scholarship plan, which includes:

    • Access to the MyGEC College Hub, the single best collection of digital college search resources available

    • Testing strategy and prep arrangement (for local clients) 

    • College consideration and analysis

    • One-on-One college essay coaching

    • Financial Aid application and documentation support

    • Twice monthly LIVE webinars on timely college application and scholarship topics

    • And so much more


A Better Alternative to Wasteful Tutoring and Classes

Bottom Line:  Our proprietary prep program has increased student ACT composite scores by an average of 3 to 5 points.

What does that mean?  Increased admissions probabilities and more scholarship dollars.  It really is as simple as that.

How Does It Work?

  • Four-six week self-guided online program that is customized to your students strengths and weakness on the ACT

  • After your student takes a diagnostic pre-test (which we provide), our proprietary algorithm identifies the best path to increasing their ACT 1, 3, or 5 points. 

  • Each Stress Free ACT program includes:

    • A pre-ACT diagnostic test​

    • One-on-one analysis and diagnostic report of pre-test results

    • Unlimited access to a customized online prep program including instructional videos, practice items, and quizzes.

Services: Scholars


Helpful Information Combined with Community

A private online community devoted to helping families navigate the entire college process, from early preparation in middle school and high school, all the way through application season and beyond.

When you join the Stress Free Scholars Community, you'll receive:

  • Access to the Stress Free Scholars private Facebook community for your entire immediate family

  • Access to two live college coaching calls per month with Dr. Thom covering timely and important topics to help keep you on track

  • Curated resources and recommendations to help you feel more prepared

  • And of course, a sense of community with like minded people who believe the college search is about the student, not the college.

Services: ASD


The Support You Need, Completely Personalized

The college search is challenging enough as it is, but it can be especially troublesome for families with children on the Autism Spectrum.  Not only do we have professional experience working with students on the spectrum, we know it first-hand as parents of a child with Aspergers.  

That's why we offer our Signature Custom College Program completely tailored to the unique needs of students with Aspergers, sensory processing disorders, and other pervasive developmental disorders.
