Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College

About this event

For many families, the high cost of higher education is a daunting proposition. Parents lie awake at night trying to figure out how to afford sending their children to college and still have enough of their hard earned money to be able to retire one day. Some families have children attending college next year and others have 12 years to plan; but the fears of tackling these monumental and rising costs are the same. The College Funding Coach® is here to help families figure out HOW to pay for it! Through our educational workshop, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College you will learn:

  • How to avoid jeopardizing your retirement nest egg!
  • Effective ways to simultaneously save AND pay for college
  • Strategies to pay for multiple children attending college at the same time
  • How to recapture out of pocket college costs
  • And much, much more!

Organizer The College Funding Coach

Organizer of Fredericksburg Christian School

For most families, they are torn between saving for college or saving for retirement.

 It doesn’t have to be that way!  The College Funding Coach® was created in 2002 to help   families navigate the maze of paying for college...and still retire one day.

What began in 2002 with a single financial advisor on a mission to help educate parents in the Washington, D.C. area with strategies for saving and paying for college has grown into a national team of nearly 100 advisors spread across the country.  We help families better understand the complex strategies for saving and paying for college and making higher education more affordable.

We collaborate with schools, businesses, churches, synagogues and community organizations to conduct several hundred workshops each year.  Our interactive workshop, Little-Known Secrets of Paying for College, teaches parents the rules of the game when it comes to financial aid, as well as the critical strategies to help them win that game—whether by qualifying for need-based aid or by maximizing cash flow and liquidity.

As you can imagine, the stock market has gone up and gone down.  Taxes have gone up and gone down.  Unemployment has increased and then decreased.  But two things have remained constant every year: approximately 20 million high school students head off to college[1], and since 2000, the cost of tuition and fees at American colleges has more than tripled the rate of inflation[2]

We help the families with whom we work understand the process and incorporate college planning into the broader context of their financial plans—from risk management to investing, estate planning and tax management.  By taking a comprehensive view of a family’s finances, we are often able to correct inefficiencies and capture dollars that can be redeployed towards paying for college.  Our approach helps parents reduce their out-of-pocket expenses and balance the challenge (and the stress) of saving for college and retirement simultaneously.
