A lot rides on the college decision process

The wrong decision could result in…

  • Unnecessary student debt
  • Unhappy student
  • Uncertain career options 

And an education that doesn’t provide adequate job opportunities
Resulting in your student back in the house

There are many aspects that go into choosing the right college for your student, and it is no easy task to pinpoint exactly what the term “right college” means.

Choosing the ‘right college’ means understanding the ‘right F.A.C.T.S.!’


I have got to tell you about the good people at Peachtree College Planning! They are the most wonderfully kind, patient and knowledgeable group of people. With them, you get a twofold plan which includes the college planning part and the financial part. The college application process has changed immensely since I was in school and I am relieved and thankful to have the Peachtree College Planning team looking out for me and my kids during this exciting and nerve wracking time….I highly recommend them!

We’ve met with a lot of independent college counselors and reviewed their programs. When our son was a junior we met Stuart and decided to use Peachtree College Planning. Three years later our son is still happy at his chosen college, and we are exactly on track with the “Plan to Pay” that Stuart helped us create. I’m 100% certain that the ‘plan to pay’ creation alone paid for the investment we made in the service. Since then they’ve grown their team and expanded their services. I can highly recommend Peachtree College Planning.

  • 5 star review  We highly recommend Peachtree College Planning! We recently met with David Hughes to discuss our daughter's college search process. David was extremely personable and knowledgeable. He offered valuable information on the admissions process and talked us through the financial aspects of college as well. We left the meeting with an incredible amount of information and renewed hope that we could help our daughter achieve her dreams. David took a true interest in our family, and we look forward to working with him again. Thank you, David!

  • 5 star review  Stuart and David are so helpful. They literally walked me through the few questions on the FAFSA form that I needed help with. They asked if I had any questions and told me to feel free to reach out to them at any addition point that I needed help I would highly recommend this office for college planning.

  • 5 star review  Stuart and his team are the real deal. I visit Peachtree College Planning because I wanted to give my daughter the best opportunities to pick a great college. Latina, female, I thought the scholarships would be rolling in, it doesn't work that way. There are scholarships out there, but full rides are few and far between. Thanks to Stuart, he gave me great tips, excellent advice, and provided me with resources to help during my daughter’s college admission and college financial planning process Thank you Stuart!

Stuart S. Canzeri

Managing Director and College Financial Planning Specialist

Hello, My name is Stuart Canzeri and I hope I can provide you with the information you need to make the best decisions for you and your student.

My friends call me Stuart and my clients call me the college financial guy, so hopefully, you will call me both at some point in our relationship. I help parents with college-bound students solve many different types of problems, many surround planning and paying for college.

If you are wondering about my credentials, I currently serve as a member of the National College Advocacy Group which provides college planning education for college planning professionals, students, and families and am Managing Partner at Peachtree Financial Group, and founder of the College Financial Guy Podcast.

I started learning about finance at an early age from my father’s employer who actually paid for my education at Tulane University. I feel my father’s employer (Nelson Rockefeller) made an investment in me so I could give back and make a difference.

During my big firm training and even pursuing the highest industry certification for financial professionals, I quickly learned first hand that parents of college-bound students were not getting the advice, resources, and education they needed to be successful for their plans and their children’s future….that is why I do this!
