Let’s face it, the college process takes work!! And it can be expensive. According to statistics published annually, the cost of attending college is steadily on the rise and affording college is far from easy.

Are you the parent of a student-athlete? Statistics show that the recruiting game is a tough process to go through. There are more than seven million high school athletes, but there are college roster spots for just two percent of them. Getting to the NCAA Division I level is even tougher. Just one percent of those seven million student-athletes get a full ride to a Division I program. That’s the bad news. The good news is that 82% of collegiate teams are outside of Division I.

Are you the parent of a student-scholar? The reality is that the college process is confusing, and most families will only do it once or twice in their lifetimes. Relying on guidance from a professional organization that has advised hundreds of other families like yours in the process makes things much less confusing, less stressful, and ultimately makes you more successful! The opportunities for students and athletes to attend a school they love and can reach their potential DO exist, and they can be affordable to your family!

At any given moment, there are hundreds of universities across the US which may be more affordable, or that have scholarships and/or financial aid available to students and athletes who meet specific academic and/or athletic requirements. By using a college placement service, you allow a professional organization with resources, systems, and experience to create the exposure necessary to help your family find the right school at the right price.

That’s why at CPOA, our focus is on providing our clients the best opportunity to be evaluated by schools around the country, giving them more options, and ultimately, a higher probability of securing an athletic, academic, or financial package to help fund their college education.
