It takes more than grades and test scores for your student to have the college education you’ve always envisioned for them.

Valedictorians with perfect SAT scores aren’t getting into top schools.

Meanwhile, the cost of college has increased 1120% since 1978 with no end in sight.

Increased competition and soaring tuition make the stakes higher
preparing students for college.
College is too expensive to risk gambling on.

It’s not enough to get admitted to just any college.

We dream of our children going to great schools where they’ll have the best advantages for the brightest future.
That requires a strategy in high school that goes beyond academics.

Three Wishes College Strategies celebrates your student’s passions, achievements, goals, and challenges with a branded

Three Wishes College FootprintTM

that enhances admissions, reduces college costs, and empowers your child
to succeed in college and beyond.

Your student is unique.

Their Three Wishes College Footprint will be, too.
