Does this sound like you?

If you said yes to any of those questions, or if this feels like you and you can relate, then this is the most important thing you’re going to read for your child’s college success.

Let me introduce myself...

Hi, I’m Jordan and I had to learn everything about college and scholarships the hard way. After a lot of hard work and a little bit of trial and error, I was fortunate to be awarded nearly $50,000 for college. For the last 5 years, I’ve helped thousands of families across the country and the world navigate this process.

I didn’t always have all the answers though.

When I was in high school, I was completely overwhelmed and totally lost. Senior year was so stressful and my mom was at a loss with how to help me.

  • I had no idea where to find legitimate scholarships
  • I was completely overwhelmed by everything that needed to be done
  • I knew I had questions, but I wasn’t sure what (or who) to ask
  • I was spinning my wheels and had no one to guide me on my journey

My mom and I would spend hours searching the internet for answers to questions like:

  • When to start applying for scholarships?
  • How to find scholarships online?
  • How to spot a scholarship scam?
  • How to stand out on applications?
This would only leave us with more questions and more overwhelm.

After wasting all of our time searching online with nothing to show for it, I was ready to give up.

But then I got my first scholarship!

I remember thinking “wow, this is real, this is real money that I won!”

That sparked something in me. I was determined to win more, so I asked myself “how can I make this easier?”

My mom and I started writing everything down. Everything that we had done right and everything that we had done wrong. We documented everything that I had done in high school and our entire process.

And guess what? It got easier!

I started winning more scholarships! Not just senior year, but each year I was in college, too!

Now, imagine your child getting that first acceptance letter.

Feel the joy and pride of celebrating that moment. Not only that, but they’ve won a scholarship from the school! It’s only going to pay for part of their education, but you’re not worried because you’ve been working together for months to find and win scholarships to cover the rest. You’re confident because you understand how the financial aid process works and how everything is going to come together. They are going to be able to attend the college of their dreams, and you’re going to be able to afford it!

I remember that celebration like it was yesterday, but I saw others struggling. My mom and I sat down and decided to see how we could help. We knew we had found a shortcut to winning scholarships.

Instead of worrying about missing out on money for college, imagine understanding everything you need to know to help your child get accepted and win scholarships.

Imagine having peace of mind and a step-by-step plan for success.

You’ll know when to start and what to do.

You’ll have all the tools you need to help your child with college applications, scholarships, financial aid and even the dreaded essays.

You’ll have answers to all your questions and someone to guide you on this journey.

Here’s what Benjamin, a high school senior and successful graduate of our intensive this summer (2017) had to say after finishing up the program:

The college journey is going so great. I got accepted into my number one choice and confirmed my enrollment. I also was awarded $50,000 scholarship for five years for going to that college. I truly couldn't do it without the help from you and ScholarPrep and for that I'm sincerely thankful.


The intensive is at times overwhelming, but stick with it. All questions will be answered! Jordan made sure to help me understand the process of the endeavor Alyssa and I are to embark on. Jordan has done the research part for you. She found the experts, put together the websites, and offered one on one assistance throughout the in-depth process. The time and money spent on the Intensive was worth it. Scholarships, here we come

- Jill, mom of Alyssa (9th grade)


The Intensive program really set us in motion. Jordan's challenges made us take action instead of procrastinating. Once we applied for that first scholarship, it seemed so easy that we started applying for more. Jordan is always willing to give her time. She's super easy to talk to and she is makes it all seem so easy! My emails to her always get answered the same day. My daughter and I both feel so much more prepared for her Junior year and the whole college process.

- Jeanne Bonicker, mom of Ally (11th grade)


Jordan is a rare combination of personal and professional and has a gift of relating to both students and parents as a coach, mentor, and source of information. She was extremely responsive to emails and always followed through on action items. We liked how she spoke directly to my son and established a relationship of trust. Jordan is enthusiastic about college readiness. We consider her a valuable friend and a top-notch resource for all things related to college and scholarships.

- Amy Lacey, mom of Aaron (11th grade)


The Intensive was a hit with my family. My boys learned how to search and apply for scholarships. My husband and I have a better understanding of the application and financial aid process. I feel confident because my children are motivated in the college planning process. They are making decisions on activities and accepting opportunities based on how it will affect their applications. ScholarPrep is an invaluable source of information. I highly recommend the Intensive Program.

- Michelle Gibbs, mom of Ryan and Todd (11th grade)

"We had the pleasure to speak directly with Jordan about this planner & how it will help our son with his college application, needs and requirements from each college he applies to. I do recommend this organizer BEFORE moving forward in college applications. This organizer is extremely well organized! The time & effort that was put into this by Jordan & her team is well worth the money, but it goes way beyond that! It will save you, the parents, time and effort as well as staying on track & meeting goals for each university. Above the organizer itself, I HIGHLY recommend spending the one on one time with Jordan. The tips & tricks she has to offer to make a better experience using this product is wonderful! Jordan really takes the time to ask questions & set goals to your high school student. If you combine those two elements, you & your student will benefit beyond just the organizer. What an excellent team of people. Thank you, Jordan!"



"As a homeschool mom with 2 high school boys, I am busy with so many educational and daily life activities. Now, I need to think about how to pay for college...agh! The ScholarPrep Organizer fits us so well. It is well organized for even the most overwhelmed parents and it is written in a concise, matter-of-fact style. I like that I can get to what I need quickly and easily understand the components of the Organizer! It is a useful tool. I wish I would have had it when my oldest was in 8th grade!"



"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!"



"The ScholarPrep Online Course was so great because it is broken up into smaller chunks of information that are easy to digest. If a student only has a few minutes, they can still go over a couple sections. The combination of videos and readings kept things interesting and the well-designed Class Curriculum page lets you go back and review sections or even skip around if you want. We plan on using the Online Course for each of our 5 children as they leave 8th grade and throughout all their high school years. We now have everything we need to teach them about college and scholarships in one place and that is an enormous help!"
