Education Advisory & Consulting by Firethorn

Saving for your child’s college education—let alone choosing which school to attend—can be an overwhelming process. Firethorn’s Education Advisory & Consulting (EAC) service helps families formulate a straightforward plan for saving and does the tough work of researching appropriate programs and schools for a teen’s goals and priorities. Our seven-step process and customized planning will help families determine their Expected Family Contribution (EFC), eligibility for merit or need based aid, the hard costs of attending college, colleges that offer the best value, concrete action items, and how college funding fits within your overall financial plan.

Long story short: EAC makes a tough choice simpler. Contact us today for a consultation or take advantage of your complimentary College Money Report below.
