Is your child’s answer to “Where do you want to start looking at college?” I DON’T KNOW

Have you found yourself searching and searching for schools to add to your child’s college list?

Are you going down a rabbit hole using search engines and generic lists, hoping to find some sort of clarity? Yet, you are constantly going back to the drawing board and never really making any headway, and instead, feeling more confused?

You’ve come to the right place! College Bound Advising works one on one with each student to create a curated list of colleges that match their personality, learning style, and goals for the future. This ultimately helps lead each student to find their ‘right fit schools’ to help them towards their college admissions journey!

Each year we see many students and families struggle to create their list of schools, and we knew we wanted to help reach more families!

Introducing our… Personalized College List Builder!

We are not a college list “search engine” – In fact, we are experts in college admissions! We use our years of extensive knowledge of colleges and adolescents to build your child’s individualized list.

With over 20 years of professional experience and an extensive understanding of both students and college admissions – we are here to be that helping hand.

We offer a personalized approach to creating a list of “right fit” schools for your student. Our senior admissions advisors meet with students individually to discover what schools are the right fit for them.

Start today with our Personalized College List Builder, to be one step closer to having a curated list of “right fit” colleges for your student!


  1. Students complete our signature U-Profile questionnaire.
  2. They are then assigned  a personal collage advisor who will schedule a 30-minute zoom call to discuss.
  3. Their advisor will then create a list of up to ten schools (and reasons why we choose then 
  4. Once their list is created ,your advisor will schedule a follow-up 45 minute zoom call to discuss our proposed list 
  5. Their advisor  will revise the  list.
  6. Their advisor will send our final list of suggested schools to your student!

When developing your child’s carefully curated list of colleges, we review the information captured in your child’s U-Profile questionnaire, information from our parent “brag sheet,” and details gathered from our initial consultation to build a list of colleges that reflects THEM.
Each and every student’s list of colleges that we come up with; includes individualized notes explaining why particular schools are a good fit for THEM!

We had no idea where to start and thought the college search process would drain us. The team at CBA took away that fear and helped our son create a list of schools that was right for him.”

Our daughter was unsure of the kind of schools she wanted to apply to. Her CBA college advisor not only created a great list for her, she helped Lily understand how to research additional schools. She eventually applied and is now happily attending a schoo
