A College Planning Model
That Puts Happiness First

Our college planning model is pretty simple. We don’t try to game the admissions system or use statistics to make money off of parents’ fears. Instead, we put the student’s emotional, social, and developmental needs first. Just like you, we want your child to be happy with their decision two, five, and ten years down the road.

We’ve learned that when you focus on these things, finding the right college fit isn’t stressful. It’s actually quite enjoyable for everyone involved. After all, that’s why we do what we do!

What Makes Our College Planning Approach Unique?

Seeing beyond the numbers and reading between the lines, our consultants have worked with more than a thousand students. We know that college planning isn’t an exact science. It’s a human process. That’s why we emphasize getting to know each student, parent, and family we work with.

Our admissions consultants oversee every aspect of the application process, ensuring students obtain application materials, finish writing tasks, and meet deadlines.

Private Essay Coaching

Experienced educators, our private writing coaches work one-on-one with students to craft unique essays and supplements, from start to finish.

“I was late to the college prep game when I met Tyler Vunk. He and his team at Vested Academics took my son under their wing and got us through the process! I was really scared and overwhelmed. They broke it all down, took out the fear, and made it easy and fun. The team was so supportive and available to us. I couldn’t imagine having to go through it without them. I am incredibly grateful and will be calling on them in about six months to start my second son and again for my third. Looking forward to working with Vested Academics in the upcoming years.”
