We help you help your students succeed.

As counselors and parents, we know that today’s secondary school counselors face a wide range of pressures and resource constraints. We understand that sometimes college preparedness is forced to take a back seat.

With the Your College Concierge platform, it doesn’t have to.


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.

Let us work together to help students who want to go to college be able to do so.

Help us help tomorrow’s thriving adults.


Meet Peter & Jill

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.

Jill Ratzan, Co-Founder and CEO

Jill spent 12 years with Discovery Channel, starting in 1995. Throughout her tenure with Discovery, Jill oversaw the integration of Discovery Education content in the classroom, and she estimates that she personally hired and trained more than 1,200 new employees, on 3 different continents.

She joined Peter in 2011. In 2015, she took charge of the development of YCC, a digital learning platform to complement the private college guidance and funding services they offer.
