You want to do everything in your power to make sure they can afford the college of their dreams, but the amount of information out there is downright overwhelming! What you need is someone to show you a tested step-by-step process to get prepared early, rather than scrambling at application time.

I’m Jordan ...and that’s exactly what I do.

I built ScholarPrep based on my own experience applying for college and securing as many scholarships as possible. Through lots of hard work I was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000. Knowing my brother was not that type of student, my mom and I carefully outlined and documented the process that had worked so successfully for me. Since we started, we’ve helped students across the country create competitive applications, get into their top choice school and win scholarships to pay for their education.


"I wanted to say "Thank You!" for the amazing resource you have created. I first started going through the ScholarPrep Organizer, and was blown away by the simple step-by-step process to get on track and stay on track. Well,as great as that resource is, I was extremely pleased when I delved into the onlineScholarPrep course! For someone like me, who likes to have a start here and follow these steps, it is perfect. Best part, the organizer and online course partner together. I have at my fingertips, a complete system to start and get my daughter's records organized . With this at my disposal, I am confident that this will not be the chore I have so been dreading. We will be ready! Again, thanks for creating something for parents that is so thorough and easy to follow."

"My how I wish we had this two years ago! We will make it, but starting half way through my son's junior year seems late! Thank you for this wonderful organizational tool! What a wonderful guide! And this is coming from a former event planner turned kinder teacher!! So I get how important organization is!You've made this very doable!"

- Beth, Mom of a High School Junior

As a mom of three, two of which have gone through the college process and one still in high school, I love everything about the ScholarPrep Organizer. I knowhow important organization is in the process of applying for college (and scholarships!) and am excited to use the book as a valuable tool while my youngest son is still in high school. Not only is it full of excellent information and timely tips, the organizer is well made and easy to understand how to use. Great job!"

- Monica Matthews, Mom of Three Boys

“I simply don’t think that the high school counselors have enough time to focus on each student. I’ve called and all I get is “visit our page on the website.” I do and I’m overwhelmed. I want someone to hold my hand through the process. By using ScholarPrep, we are able to set clear goals and objectives with key milestones. This means less pressure on me as the parent and clarity for my son."

-Eugenia, mom of a high school junior
