College planning requires more than just managing tasks, deadlines, testing calendars or financial aid applications. It requires the right combination of differentiated learning resources and just-in-time, individualized attention.
By using YCC, counselors can provide their students, and their families, with both.
On the front end, students and their families get the individualized help they need to find, get into and pay less for college.
On the back end, educators and counselors have an easy-to-use evaluative tool to manage large groups of students, assign tasks, individualize resources, track student progress, communicate with students and parents, measure engagement and report student outcomes.
Peter Ratzan, Co-Founder and CEO
Since 2007, Peter has personally helped more than 1100 families (and counting) successfully navigate the college process, gain acceptance to great colleges, and earn hundreds of thousands of dollars (literally) for college.
In 2015, he created the YCC platform to give more families easy and affordable access to the kind of individualized college supports that he’d been using in private practice.
